Had a conversation with Dr. Al today that went something like this:
me: Heard you've been telling people to have me cut their hair.
Al: Well, Heidi said something about your hair this morning and I said "You
know, he does that with a chainsaw." And she believed me!
me: So let me get this straight...I am a topic of discussion in your classes?
Al: Well, this morning you were.
me: I see...
Al: But then so are various laboratory animals.
me: (storming off in exasperation) So that's the way it is, eh? I'm just a
lab rat in your mind. I understand, don't worry.
Al: (scampering after me) Hey, I was only trying to make you feel better.
Come on, we'll get you some rat food.
me: Gonna put me in one of those little mazes and see if I find the treat in
less than x trials?
Al: Oh, we've been doing that for the last three and a half years. You're
very close to the treat now.
Gotta admit it, the man is quick.
