//A story from Dr. Simel... So, you know, a long time ago, I used to like to catch a few Zs before my classes. So I had my pillow, and my blanket, and there was this conference room next to my office. I told the secretary to wake me up in 15 minutes, when my class started, and I lay down under the conference table. Later, I woke up, and saw that I had been drooling. Like, reeeeaally drooling. And I looked at my watch, and noticed I was 10 minutes late for class. And then I noticed there were a bunch of legs all around me, and realized they were having a meeting, and they didn't know I was under here. So I was thinking, "Oh my god, what do I do, I can't just skip class," and so I crawled out from under the table - and I was about 30, y'know - and all the people just stared at me. And when I got out of the room, about 3 seconds later, I heard them all start to crack up. Then, a few years later, whenever someone looked at me and started to laugh, I knew that person had been one of the people in the room. Isn't that great?
