"I think I'd make a great teacher so I'm going down to LD Bell High School and do a presentation so they will let me teach a class next year."
"Really Steve? I didn't know you had a teachers certificate"
"I don't. But I should, don't you think? Hell, I should have a Masters in something, one would think. And after I give my presentation they will want me, I'm sure of it"
"I dunno Steve. What's the class going to be about?"
"About? Its going to be about "Nothing". A class about nothing in particular and everything in general. I'll come in everyday and just decide what we will learn about that day. We can call it " "Nothing 101""
"Nothing 101" Steve? Do you really think they will go for that?"
"Oh sure! The kids will love it!"
"OK Steve, so supposing they do hire you what will you do your first day?"
"I dunno. Stuff. Maybe we could talk about pencils."
"Pencils, Steve? What do you know about pencils?"
"Well, I know a lot about pencils. Dad told me it was the pencil that ruled the world, that nothing got bought sold or built without a pencil. But I tell you what is really amazing about a pencil."
"What's that Steve?"
"There is no country on the face of the earth can produce a pencil all by itself."
"How's that?
"Well you gotta have rubber for erasers, wood for the body and graphite to go inside and there is no country in the world has all those materials available on their own."
"Steve, that's going to be some class!"
"I agree!"

I would like to enroll in your class. But be warned. I like to sit in the back of class and throw spitballs.
