I’ve got this class that’s “discussion oriented.”

Because I usually haven’t done the reading, I normally just sit there, keep the weathertrap shut and mutter “mm-hmm” every once in a while. But yesterday my professor decided we should go around the room and have each student provide his or her own bit of insight.

Time for panic? Not if you’ve followed the Slacker’s Code, which states that when participating in round-table discussions, always sit directly across from the teacher. That way, no matter what side of the room she begins the discussion you get to hear half of the class provide a Cliffs Notes description of the text for you.

Friday’s forecast: an early “I’d like to go back to what she was saying” followed by a downpour of bullshit.
