Jim was just explaining to the class that it was disputable that there is no way to interlink a hoagie with a slicker when writing.
Andrea, who was monitoring his Creative Writing class teaching, laughed and said, “That just can not be done”.
“You are very self-centered if you think that. There is almost always a way to interlink words when writing.”, he said.
With an air of nonchalance, he proceeded to write the following on the blackboard:
While eating the italian hoagie, I was wearing my slicker to keep my clothes clean.
The class erupted into laughter, and Andrea’s jaw dropped, as she realized two such seemingly unrelated words could indeed be interlinked, and with such ease.
Watch what you put forth as fact, lest you appear to be a nonentity in the teaching profession.
This was inspired by the April 1st through April 7th, 2011 word of the day entries of The Free Dictionary:
Interlink, hoagie, self-centered, disputable, nonchalance, slicker, and nonentity.
