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.“
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.
