Quit While You’re A-Dead

, , , , | Learning | May 13, 2018

(I go to a dinner for honors students at my college. I end up sitting at a table with two of my professors from last semester. One of them, [Professor #1], is known for wild stories about his experiences.)

Professor #1: “Yeah, but we were young and reckless, and ended up losing two scientists.”

Professor #2: “Losing? You don’t mean…?”

Professor #1: “Well, one was trying to find more types of edible mushrooms, and he made a mistake.”

Professor #2: “A mistake?!”

Professor #1: “And another was looking at rocks in a cave when he fell onto a stalactite, or a stalagmite, I guess?”

(I honestly thought he meant they quit, not died!)
