You are a scribe living in the fertile blacklands of Egypt during the New Kingdom period. The year is 1272 B.C. You step out onto the terrace of your magnificent home and breath in the warm evening air. As you gaze into the setting sun, or Amon as he is known, you feel a sense of pride at the fact that you have graduated from scribe school and that you are now a wealthy servant of pharaoh. "Well, not everyone can claim to work for a god. ", you chuckle to yourself. Suddenly, you awaken with a jerk. As you wipe the drool off your writing board, you realize to your disappointment that you are still in scribe school, learning to be a scribe. You look up to see your school master working with another student. A student sitting near you passes you a piece of papyrus with some writing on it.
