Remind me to tell you sometime about the moment, during an exchange I had with him, I got a dangerous taste for making an auditorium full of people laugh. An event which, for quite a few weeks, caused me to entertain the idea that I could give stand-up comedy a go.
Luckily that urge has now passed ... I think ...
Anyway - back to the overheard:
Lecturer [half jokingly]: Well maybe if you took your headphones out you’d have known what I said!
Student: Oh, I can hear ... I just wasn’t paying any attention.
Heard on: 24.02.09
