A Moment of Terror

"Well, I gotta go get ready to teach tomorrow."

"What! Tomorrow?!"

"Yes. Tomorrow."

"But classes start next week. What are you teaching?"

"Economics 121. Classes start this week."

"If you're teaching the first class of Economics 121 tomorrow, then I missed teaching the first class of Economics 101b yesterday!"

[Pause]

"At least one of us is not in touch with reality."
