The Eiffel Tower, built in 1889 to
celebrate the centenary of the
French Revolution, is a
technological masterpiece in building-construction history.

Today my dad took me to see the Eiffel Tower and I took this photograph.  Isn’t it impressive?  Actually I had always thought that the Eiffel Tower was a little bigger, but my dad assured me that it wasn’t.  “Are you sure this is it?”   I asked him incredulously,  “I didn’t know that the Eiffel Tower was in the middle of a corn field.””Of course this is it, you idiot,” he glowered back, “Are you calling me a liar?”

“No sir,” I meekly replied.

Here’s what’s really strange: off in the distance, I noticed what appeared to be another Eiffel Tower connected to this one with a series of long metal wires.  Perhaps the French recently built a second, lesser-known companion tower.  I almost asked my dad about it but I was too scared.
