Tolu couldn’t hide his excitement as he and his classmates entered the science laboratory. He relished telling this to his father who hardly believed in him even when he said that he would be the next Einstein.

He sat in the front row and was determined not to be distracted.

After setting up the necessary apparatus, the Physics master explained to the Form I class: “When you immerse this object in water, it displaces water of its own mass.”

“Oh, yes,” interjected an overzealous Tolu. “That’s why our parish priest insists on baptism by immersion. He calls it high mass!”
