“The KC Royals won the World Series. I was teaching a graduate night class then and we are located close to St. Louis so there are a lot of baseball fans for the Cardinals and the Royals. A student emailed saying he had to go to KC and would have to miss class. Could he make up the quiz? Well I knew the parade was the day after my class so I was pretty sure it all had to do with baseball. So, I played a little, ‘you can make up the quiz if you have a university approved absence or a funeral.’ His answer, ‘well technically I am going to the funeral of 30 years of bad baseball.’ Bahahaha. I told him to go have fun and he can make up the quiz when he gets back.”
