"Crap! I wish I hadn't seen Ricky on the sidewalk."

"You will be fine for 31 minutes. You will be dead in 32 minutes."

Sammy started community college a week ago. 

His English class meets once a week for several hours. The students work at their own terminals and the instructor's notes are visible on a large monitor at the front of the class.

One of their first assignments was definitions.  The instructor asked the class to define freedom in their own words. 

Heads bowed simultaneously, fingers began typing.

And then this, from the instructor: Are you kidding me, Emmanuel?

Apparently, Emmanuel thought his response would be anonymous, so he didn't think twice about typing pre-marital butt sex as his definition of freedom.

Not only was it not anonymous, it was also displayed on the large monitor at the front of the classroom.

Sammy had great difficulty telling me the story without laughing.

That's my boy.
