Not sure why this memory reappeared all of a sudden, but I’m glad it did, because now I have a funny to offer you for this weekend.
Ten years ago I taught Spanish at a local community college.
One morning I was collecting homework, and I got to a student who didn’t have his to turn into me. I expressed my displeasure with this state of affairs and he replied,
“Well, if I’d known I was gonna get arrested last night, I would’ve kept my Spanish stuff with me so that I had it when I got out of jail this morning.”
