??? 1.0

I was walking onto campus this morning with a shopping bag full of styrofoam cups – probably about 200 or so. A teacher walking next to me engaged me in conversation:

“So, you having a party?”

“Nope”

“Those are all for your personal use?”

“Nope.”

“???”

Is it weird that I find it troubling that the last thing that goes through a teacher’s mind when they see a big stack of cups, or anything else out of the ordinary, is that it might be for a lesson rather than a party or something?

    Is this one of Dan’s lessons?

    I think it’s pretty common (I first heard about it from someone else) but his take on it was the nicest I’d seen, so: yes.
