So I’m in Corporations, reading1 a slide about the Business Judgment Rule. My classmate sitting next to me starts to lean back in his chair and we hear a snap:
A-BOOM-a-noom! Both of us crash down to the floor and hit our heads on the ledge behind our seats…and hilarity ensued.2
Professor M: “Oh my god! Are you guys okay?”
(The entire class laughs, as we scramble back up)
Me: “Yes, but you now have to change your seating chart, ‘cus we’re moving!”
(We dust ourselves off and move our stuff, the laughing intensifies).
Professor M: “Yes! I’ll do that right now actually!”3
Law school is all grace and poise, don’tcha know?
1 Seriously, this is the karma I get for paying attention…
2 Total “But No Thanks” reference.
3 Yes, Professor M actually changed the seating chart as we moved over to non-broken seats. We sat in launch position for the rest of the class lest we repeat the crash scene.
