"ooo...she sound sick."
(concerned student)


"No.

She sound drunk."
(unconcerned student)

She’s a wealth of material. It’s funny because it’s probably true. It’s sad because she can recognize the difference over the intercom. It’s an odd coincidence though as I am able to recite the pledge of allegiance hoarsely and more precisely after drinking all day at Mardi Gras parades.
