Student #1: "I like, love, rocks. Some people think their boring, but I just love them. Geology is my fvorite class. I tried to get this class everyday, but the Admissions Office wouldn't let me. I just love your class professor."
Geology Professor: "Well, I appreciate that, but I think it's time to move ahead with the lecture."
Student #3 to #4: "Damn, there she goes again, giving him verbal head. I heard she did the same thing to her Latin professor."
