Onions Make Most People Cry

| Learning | April 15, 2014

(It’s exam week and half of my chemistry class isn’t in, so we have light revision, Our teacher mentions the properties of nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas. I turn to my friend.)

Me: “I wonder what it would be like on that. You’d find everything funny.”

Friend: “True. I mean, you could put a red onion on the table and it would be hilarious.”

Me: “Spinning it would set us into laughing fit.”

(We actually imagine this and start laughing to the point that our teacher sees us.)

Teacher: “Why are you two laughing?”

Me: *giggling* “We are just laughing at spinning an imaginary red onion.”

(There’s a long pause.)

Teacher: “I never expected that kind of response…”
