Hi King Fans! Welcome back to another little student story.
Sometimes, as students, we can have lectures that come really late in the day. After a long day of focusing on metals, carbons and electrons all day, to then have a lecture at 17:00 can sometimes be a bit of a challenge - for the lecturers as much as the students.
And it went everywhere! And when I say everywhere, I really do mean everywhere! Spattered across the seats, strewn across the floor, dripping off her bag. And to make matters worse, this smoothing was the strongest green colour that showed up fantastically against the light colours of our lecture theater seats and carpet! There was no hiding what had just happened, and even less chance of cleaning it up in the two minutes we had until the lecture began.
She just stared at it for a long moment, as though not quite absorbing what just happened - as though not willing to believe it. Then she sat down, and took a moment to come up with some kind of game plan. After a brief pause, she got back up, swept up her things in an attempt to save her notes, and the other contents of her bag. Then she bundled her things together, having decided the lecture theater was not the place, and left, not to return for the rest of the hour.
However, half way through the lecture we noticed that she'd accidentally left one of her books behind. None of us really wanted to touch it, it was still drenched through with green smoothie. And yet we didn't want to leave it behind in case somehow she wanted to save it. One of my housemates stepped up, found a scrap piece of paper and folded the grimy book up and we carried it all the way home, dripping green goop behind us on the tired trudge back to our house.
Hope this story made you smile. See you soon King fans, have a wonderful day!
