Not Really a Joke: More The Re-Telling Of An Event That Happened To Me
For those who are Chemistry minded only.
I was reminded of something that happened to while I was in the sixth form [many years ago]
I was in the sixth form studying Chemistry, Physics and Maths at 'A' Level.
A non-Chemistry friend and I decided to take a mid-day break and go down to the local pub [we should not have been allowed in but we knew we would be]
We arrive before the 12:00 opening so while waiting I decided to leaf through the flip over telephone directory that were prevalent in telephone boxes at that time. I found a Mr. Cannizzaro. I declared this [with, sadly, some excitement] to my friend who did not understand why I thought this should find this so unusual. I did find it odd because I had never expected to a name so 'odd' in a local phone book.
We finished our afternoon break and returned to school.
With another sixth form friend who was studying Chemistry I began work on some 'A' Level Chemistry problems we had been set by our teacher. The non-Chemistry friend overheard our discussions and declared that I should have called the guy earlier that day '...to see what his reaction was!'
I found it very amusing at the time and I still smile now when I think about it.
Perhaps you had to be there...?
