I’ve been meaning to write this story for awhile but haven’t been able to get around to it until now…
So, Wednesday before last I woke up and got ready for my one and only lecture that day. Some of you may think that having only one lecture for a day is breezy, especially when it’s only 50 minutes.. But until you’ve had “Cell and Molecular Biology” with Lucy Lee you will never realize just how long 50 minutes can be.
I’ve always found it funny how 4 hours can feel like 12 seconds while watching a Fresh Prince marathon for example, while 12 seconds feels like 4 hours while listening to just how interesting Professor Lee thinks micro-filaments are compared to micro-tubules. (For my fellow All Saints graduates, Lucy Lee is like Mrs. Klobucar on steroids)
Unfortunately, her classes are in the one lecture hall that doesn’t have a wireless connection. And Even if it did, my laptop battery lasts for a total of 4 minutes without the power cable. This means that every class I’m forced to play with my blackberry and unfortunately, Brick Breaker loses its flare after about 6 minutes.
I’m not sure what compelled me to do so, but that day I decided it would be fun to play my phone’s bluetooth. Out of boredom I looked up all of the devices in the class and thought it would be a good idea to try to connect to people’s macbooks and annoy the hell out of them with messages (it’s a 300 person class after all). At this point it dawned on me that maybe, just maybe, Professor Lee’s Macbook bluetooth would be on and in range for a connection. I turned to my buddy Dan and said “Watch this”…
To hide my identity I thought it best to change my phone’s name to something that wasn’t Shomar Griffiths. I immediately hit and stared at my phone wondering what would happen which is when I heard Dan say “Oh my God”. I looked up to see that the professor’s Power Point presentation turned black and went to her desktop which displayed the message “Sweet Black Romeo Griffiths is attempting to connect with you. Enter password”.
The message was met with laughter and whispers as Dr. Lee repeated the message aloud wondering who it was. I’m the only black male in the entire lecture, and she will never be able to accuse me because I have the race card advantage.
What, ’cause I’m black you think I did it?!
For those who have the balls (or ovaries) I recommend you try this in any boring class you may have. And remember SNITCHES get STITCHES!
Get it?! hahahaha
