Note to self: Stop doing anything.

Actual dialogue from this morning’s class:

Student 1: I’d like to invite you all to come see the university orchestra perform next Monday. Tickets for students and their spouses are $1 each.

Me: What about faculty?

Student 1: Also $1.

Me: What about faculty spouses?

Student 1: Also $1.

Me: What about those of us without spouses? What about life partners? Why should married people get all the breaks?

Student 1: Ummm…

Me: In my experience, that usually works, actually. I can’t tell you how many one-night “life partners” I’ve had.

Student 2: WHAT??

Me: No, not like that… [Students, overcome by collective hysteria, fail to heed feeble protest] …never mind. See, this is why I should just never say anything in the classroom.
