There’s been rumours since late last week, but no credible source would come to confirm or reject them. During the weekend, things seemed to quiet down, but reporters from various agencies kept pouring into the small town of St Andrews, just in case there was any truth in the rumour; could it be possible that K. Zafeiris was finally going to submit?
The start of the day on Monday was uneventful, but at around 11 am a reporter of LA Times noticed increased mobility in the photocopy area of the University Library; Mr Zafeiris was later spotted leaving from the back door, carrying a big box. When CNN asked him what was in it, he replied ‘no comment’ and headed towards the Reprographics services of the University. He was later seen leaving the building without the box, but with a big smile in his face, and still refusing to answer any questions.
Our reporter visited the reception of Reprographics, which (is rumoured) was the office of Dr Kritsotakis when he was writing his Ph.D., but the employees refused to offer any more information. However, it was pretty clear that the unthinkable was indeed going to happen, and bookmakers all over Britain were slashing the odds.
At 3 pm today, Mr Zafeiris entered the Old Union Building. The building is also known as the Labyrinth, and it is the last challenge every Ph.D. candidate has to face before submitting; finding their way to the PostGrad Office, and, more importantly, managing to get out to the real world is a daunting task, and many a students are known to have failed this last step. But Mr Zafeiris emerged from the building safe and sound, accompanied by an attractive young lady. He again refused to make any comments (there is a rumour that he is to give an exclusive interview to the ’60 minutes’), but did make the victory sign, and walked towards the Old Course.
