[Back in college, it was the first day of one of my classes, and this girl came in late and sat next to me. We chatted a bit. It turned out that she had missed registration and was having to get each Professor's signature to get into the classes she needed. A couple of years later, I was going through all my old class notes before I threw them out and found a 2-line poem I had scribbled in the margins of my notes from that day. --Mek]

Oh, whatever gods there be,
Let her get in this class with me!
