A handful of students raise their hands.
"Okay, and how many of you ladies took Sociology last quarter?"
Four or five girls raise their hands.
"Interesting...and how many of you guys bought your books? Raise your hands high now."
The same handful of kids raise their hands.
"And which of you ladies took a Soc. class last quarter?"
Again, the four or five girls raise their hands. And by now, the entire class is thoroughly confused. The prof pauses - then poses a question: "Why is it that when I asked 'which of you guys' had bought your books, a group of guys and girls raised their hands, but when I asked 'how many ladies' had taken a Sociology course before, only girls raised their hands?"
That was probably the coolest intro to a class I'd ever seen - and that was just the start. We talked about sadomasochists, rapists, murderers, witches, and all kinds of other fun and exciting things. I'm definitely stoked for this class.
This blogging thing is kinda fun, I'm going to try to do an update every day. And in my special little world inside my head, people will be reading it, too.
