The Big Picture

Shari

Hello, this is AJ. Welcome to the mini-story lesson for "The Big Picture." Let's start right now.

:: Mini-Story

Athena was the most famous dog in the world. First, Athena memorized 92,000 songs and played them all on the piano.

So, she memorized 92,000 songs and played them on the piano. That's amazing. But there's more. Athena also learned the guitar, too. And she integrated the guitar with the piano. She played every song on both the piano and the guitar at the same time.

She could play both at the same time. With different legs, of course...two legs on the piano, two legs on the guitar. But that's not all, there's more. Athena was one amazing dog. Because next she became a contestant in boxing matches. She could fight. She was a tough dog.

So she was a contestant in boxing matches and she won every fight. She beat everyone that she fought. Athena won 6,022 boxing matches, 6,022 fights. She beat every single person she fought. She was a contestant in 6,022 boxing matches and she won all 6,022. Amazing. What an amazing dog. But there's still more. Athena got a little bored. She could play the piano and the guitar at the same time. She was fighting and beating everybody, "Yeah, I need something new."

So next she decided to learn languages. She learned 55 languages perfectly. Athena became a noted linguist. She was also a noted piano player. She was a noted fighter. She was a noted guitar player and now a noted linguist, too.

Well, finally Athena became a little bored again and she thought "What can I do next...hmm...what can I do next? Hmmm." She decided to become the President of the United Nations. And she did. Athena next became the President of the UN, the President of the United Nations.

She became the most famous President of the United Nations because she ended all wars in all of the world. Athena ended all wars. Now, of course, because she ended all wars everyone in the world was happy. They all loved Athena, the most famous dog in the world.

Alright, that is the end of the mini‐story for The Big Picture. Listen to the mini‐story many times. Pause after every question. Shout your answers if you can. If you're alone or if you don't care if people think you're crazy...shout the answer. If you're in a train and you don't want people to think you're crazy, then maybe kind of say it quietly... but say something, right? Let the air come out of your mouth. Don't just think it. You need to say the answers. It's very important.

Okay, well I'll see you next time for the point of view stories.
