Choose the short straw…

By Rudeina Bayoumi, Rehab Ahmed Mohamed and Aisha Mohamed Montaser (MSA ceramic students)

Our supervisors in the ceramics team gave us some topics to read and discuss together the following day. They also assigned pages or topics for every one of us.

One day they gave us some pages with a lot of topics, and they asked us to divide it between ourselves. But we didn’t know how to do that! If we divided it by pages the topics would not be complete, and if we divided it by topic some of us would have more than 5 pages and the others less than half page. So what could we do?

The break time came and the answer also came with it. Guess what? It is “the short straw” game we decided to play, to divide the topics by luck. We played it and finally Rudeina was the unlucky person in our group, because she got the biggest part of these articles. Better luck next time!
