Today my students took their lab final. I don't let them in the room beforehand for obvious reasons, so I stood out in the hall with them to answer any last minute questions. Five students were lined up against the wall. All five were wearing black. Coincidentally, so was I.
Me: Looks like you guys are all on your way to a funeral.
Student: You're wearing black too.
Me: That's because I'm at a funeral.
Student: True. You're standing where hopes and dreams go to die.
He must not have been feeling overly confident.
