It was my stupid bad luck that granted a math tutor during Christmas break. It was that same lousy luck that assigned ‘Old Owen Vanderstien’ as that tutor.
Everyone knew of ‘Old Owen Vanderstien’. Tyler Rumour said that he was the oldest man in the entire world. Emma Wyatt said that he has his house sprayed every year for termites because he had wooden teeth. Stanley Dieter said that he was SOOO old that he was growing mold on his chin… When the doorbell rang, I ran to the window to look outside. With one glance, I couldn’t help but have a feeling that ‘Old Owen Vanderstien’ wasn’t as old-fashioned as they led me to believe. 🙂
