My friend Karla is coming to visit this weekend and she’s going to meet the K’s and we’re all going to do something together. Today, I was discussing the details with Mr. K after the math class. Karla works in a lab that runs various experiements that occasionally need to be shaken. You need to know that or this story won’t be funny.
What time is Karla going to get here?
I don’t know–I’m hoping she can check in at work and then come right here. I hope she can be here by about three-thirty on Friday.
If she goes to work there’s no way she’ll be here by then.
Well, if she just swings by–all she has to do is go in and agitate some stuff and leave.
To that, Mr. K. responded: Sounds exactly like one of our days.
I know it’s a pun, but I still thought it was funny—get it? We’re teachers? We annoy the student by asking them to work? Karla shakes test tubes?. . .I’m a nerd–I know.
