Directions


MCTC just opened a new science building. So today, before class, I'm doing some math and a pretty, young woman approaches me with a look of concern and rising urgency on her face. She addresses me politely.

"Excuse me. Can you tell me where the Science Building is?" As usual, my internal editor is asleep at the controls.

"Is it that obvious?" The subtlest adjustment of her expression tells me that she hasn't got time for anything but directions.

That's funny. I always get asked directions to the nearest witch's coven.

Pretty ladies come up to me and say things like:

"Are you lost, sir?"
or
"Can we call someone to come and get you?"
