It was a cool night in December of 1879. He sat in the laboratory, surrounded by notebook scribbles of his latest concept. The elements were all there – he’d been planning it for months now. The cheese, chattering teeth, marble… the gears were all aligned, handle locked in place and everything set just so. It was going to work. “It has to,” he thought to himself, making the finishing touches. After all, the candles were nearly burnt to the tip, the wax collecting in puddles on the table, and time was running out and fast.
He thought back to the moment when he had the revelation. Sitting there that morning enjoying his routine cup o’ joe, buttery toast, watching “Hammy” run on the wheel. It was then that it all clicked; an imaginary light bulb glowed above his head.
So many before him had tried, so tirelessly attempted, but he was determined. Aside from the glory, so much was riding on it. Plus, he’d already commissioned a costly plaque reading, “He did it… the genius did it!” Fingers tightly crossed, a deep inhale, and he set it off. From start to finish, it was perfect. There was light, glorious LIGHT. The first incandescent bulb worked!
And so, with a little ingenuity, a few years of know-how and a bunch of super-terrific creative brilliance, the bulb which was once a figment of his imagination had come to life!
