My school had recently hired a new professor, and I volunteered to assist while he moved into his new classroom. He happily accepted my help. I walked into the classroom, and saw him unpacking some boxes.
"So what class are you going to be teaching?" I asked.
"You don't need to worry about that," was his reply. "Oh, and by the way. Could you run to the store and grab those items for me. I forgot to get them earlier."
"Sure..." I said, still confused.
As I headed out the door, I wondered why he hadn't told me which subject he taught. I looked at the list he had given me.
- Raw Broccoli
- Yellow Bathrobe
- LED Lightbulb
- White Turmeric
- Microwave Popcorn
- Sweet Potato
- Stuffed Wolf
- Disposable Phone
- Can of Tuna
As I read it again, I suddenly understood.
"That man is a genius!" I yelled as I headed off to the store.
What did I learn from the professor's shopping list? Why?
