When I asked Professor Sunflower if he would like to see my sculpture, he said: “Your what?”. I said “My sculpture!”. “Your… pture?”. “Ahh…, you mean your poster!”.
When I asked him if he liked my poster, he murmured, looked around the room, skipped the poster on the wall and focussed on the light bulb hanging from the ceiling, he said: “No, I don’t like your pendant; and how dare you ask me to spent my valuable time on such a futility. A genius mind has other things to do but comment on a naked light bulb.” And off he went.
