I'm coming up only to hold you under

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.

Ha. I love that you can kid with them like that and they can kid back -- I can only do that to an extent with mine.

But isn't all of Vegas "where hopes and dreams go to die"?

Yep that's pretty much how I always felt when just about to take a test. I never thought of wearing my mourning clothes beforehand though. It's good to think ahead.
