In Which I Discover I Am A Bit Competitive

So yesterday I'm sitting in the Contracts class, for which I turned in my videotaped writing assignment and in which we are supposed to have a quiz the last 25 minutes of the class. And she's lecturing along very interestingly. And lecturing. And lecturing. And I'm staring up meaningfully at the clock BECAUSE IT'S TIME TO HAVE THE QUIZ, dammit and she lectures right through the quiz time. Because she was on a roll and forgot we were supposed to have a quiz. BUT MY BODY CHEMISTRY WAS ALL WORKED UP TO HAVE THE QUIZ, dammit and I can't believe how disappointed and even upset I was over not getting to take the quiz and so she says we can take it home and do it openbook and turn it in next class and I think WHAT GOOD IS THAT? Does that give me an opportunity to show off and leave my 19 year old classmates in my dust? I submit to you IT DOES NOT.
Dammit.

Life's like that, I guess. Full of exciting expectation and disappointments. But, "Tomorrow is another day!"

LOL! Why didn't you shout out, "I object!"? (Sorry, just seen Legally Blonde again.)

I agree with UC: I'm sure you're one of the fastest and best googlers in the West. :-)

Meanwhile, everyone else in the class was staring up at the clock with fingers crossed. And breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the hour.

LOL - my prof is still getting the different classes mixed up - "we covered this, right?" I've taken to asking him what he's smoked beforehand. Our exam was already scheduled to be a take-home one with four essay questions (he also encourages discussion among students, saying that it's part of the learning process) and still he was a class behind in getting it to us.

It's been interesting being the oldster in this class.

LOL - I had to sometimes cancel a test because I forgot that periods were shortened due to an assembly or something like that.

I learned my lesson a few years ago to avoid that at all costs. Once kids study, thy're ready to go. Now.

You're probably the only one in the class prepared, ready and wanting to take the test. It's not nice to laugh at other people's disappointments but really, this is very funny.

*sigh* All dressed up, too. Nothin' like going to all the preparation, for nothing. Oh, well, there's always tomorrow.

LOL. Great cartoon, and excellent post. I understand completely!

I guess the lesson was in the "fairness" of the law. There isn't much.
