Someone Got The Role To Die For

| Learning | November 7, 2013

(I am teaching an introduction to theatre class. Most of the students are majoring in other degree areas, and take the class for the English requirement. Students are required to attend a performance of a play on campus and turn in a paper describing their reactions to it. I’m handing back the papers and I get to a nursing major.)

Me: “[Student Name], are you studying flesh-eating diseases in your nursing classes?”

Student: *eyes wide* “Um, yes! But how did you know?”

Me: “Because you described the lead female character as ‘dreamy and necrotic.'”
