Had a student who brought her boyfriend to meet the family. They politely inquired about his plans for the future. In a moment of uncontrolled whimsy he said,
“I want to own a pig circus.”
With themed foods, no less. He waxed eloquent.
Pork funnel cake.
Whipped bacon flavored cotton candy.
Pigs leaping through hoops of fire.
The girl punished him by making him get a job.
