@ As a college professor, my husband has published several books. When he finished his latest book, I stopped at the supermarket to get some treats and bought some ice cream and champagne. As the clerk bagged my purchases she asked, “Celebrating something?”   “Yes”, I replied, “My husband just finished a book.”  The young lady thought for a moment and asked, “Is he a slow reader?”

* A fellow computer programmer in our group that designs software for one of our largest accounts requested my assistance in an installation. At first, he handled most of the work, with me just doing corrections and inputting data. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training. When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her out to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. “I’m so glad you’re teaching me instead of him.” Surprised,  I replied that my colleague was far more experienced than I was. “Yes,” she said, “but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get really nervous around smart people.”

A medical student was asked a question on his life science test. List four advantages of breast milk: He wrote: 1. no need to boil to kill the germs. 2. Cats can’t steal it.   3. Available on demand…but then he ran out of answers until he recalled  4. Comes in attractive containers.
