The snozzberries taste like snozzberry.

OK...I'm totally over the trauma of grades because so many funny things happened today.

Evidence Class:

Prof: "...problem with people is that they often lie about speed, time, age..."
Me: "Length"
Friend: *snort*

Prof: " can be very difficult to portray sarcasm in a written format..."
Me: "God, tell me about it"
Friend: "Perhaps we should tell him about the sarcasm mark?"

Law and Pop Culture Class:

Someone (can't remember if it was Prof or classmate): "You know how they say everyone has a cocaine receptor in the brain that makes you want it and makes it feel good to take it?"
Quiet Guy in Class: "Do I ever!"

Classmate: "And so, you can see that while Atticus Finch is more like a 'King Arthur', Scout and Jem are more like 'Frodo' and 'Samwise.'"

Funny things that are the result of me not being able to feel my left hand/arm:
-Typing words wrong 18 times in a row.
-Dropping change and having to do an entire gymnastics routine complete with backflip in order to maneuver backpack into position allowing me to pick it up with my right hand.
- Spastic dropping of Admiralty textbook on bus.
- Wonder and amazement when I am holding things because I can't feel them. HEY, where'd that bottle of Diet Coke come from? How long have I been holding it? Where am I?
- Total lack of fine motor control.

I've gotten some good requests via the comments and email, but if you want to hear about anything in particular (PLEASE save me from having to think stuff up on my own) you know what to do. Or maybe you don't. Leave a comment or send an I said before. Sheesh.
