Scene: On campus, early afternoon, a slight rain falls.
Student: DOCTOR MOROSE!
Student: Hi! I'm in your class!
Professor: Great, um, which one? (It's a new semester, I have a lot of new students!)
Student: I don't remember. It meets at like 4 in the afternoon!
Professor: Ah, Hamster Ranching!
Student: (frowns) No, that doesn't sound right.
Professor: OK, Gerbil Fur Dyeing? That meets before my hamster class.
Student: That's it! What books do we have to buy?
Professor: Well, there are two, "Into to Gerbil Fur" and "Diary of a Furrier."
Student: (looks confused) No, those aren't right.
Professor: Were there three books? "Furs Chicago Style," "Hamsters For Fun and Profit" and "The Big Book of Hamsters"?
Student: (rifles through book bag) No, that doesn't sound right either. But I want to make sure I bought the right books!
Professor: (sighs to self) Tell you what. Bring the books to class tomorrow and we'll see what you have, OK?
Student: (smiles) Great! See you then! (runs off to class)
Professor walks to car, a bit more slowly than before, sighs softly to self.
