    Here's an old favourite of mine that my dad showed me in the 70s.
    Interpret the story below:

    10 was a bishop
    22 was 12
    101 a Nobel Prize
    22112
    Make it happen!

    I can make you smile and I am a time machine.

    I can make lost loves reappear and I can make you cry.

    In an instant I am made and I am here forever.

    What am I?
