True Story

Posted in Erleben um 4:47 pm von deadra

I came in to work a bit early today and sat down in the office, hoping to finish my book in relative peace before battling French verbs.

Suddenly, a stressed-looking co-worker comes in, sees me and comes towards me: „How much do you know about World War I ?“

I looked at her, then at Niall Ferguson’s „1914: Why The World Went To War“ in my hands, then back at her: „…Depends?“

She gives me a brilliant smile: „I need you to explain the War to my student.“

Me: „Okaaaay…“

Her: „Great!!! Just make it quick, he has to leave in six minutes.“

Whoever’s making up my life is clearly on some very strange drugs.

    Well, it’s at least more interesting than other lives I know of. :)

      Occasionally it is. Mostly not. But I guess on average I do come out above the curve ^^

      Still…out of the six minutes, it took me at least two to get out of IR-graduate-mode…the poor clueless boy hadn’t done anything to deserve my rant on the cataclysmic failure of balance of power politics among the pentarchy.
