When analogies crash and burn

Our choir director during tonight's rehearsal:

"You all sound like you're singing in the shower!"

"You mean loudly and joyfully like we don't care who can hear us?"

"No. Too quietly. Like you're trying not to wake up the cat asleep in the sink."

i once had a chem prof get very angry when people were confused about crystalization of proteins. he yelled at us that it was really "quite simple - like the nervous system of a frog".

Betty - hilarious!

And styley - are you the one who asked the question in choir?

StyleyGeek said...

Nope, not me. I was the one surreptitiously studying Middle Egyptian vocab off flashcards.
