Setting: Literature class.
Subject: Don Quixote.
Situation: Professor attempting to explain why the title character’s niece would object to him running about the countryside tilting at windmills – particularly when she’s engaged to an up-and-coming young doctor. Suddenly there’s a shriek of understanding from the from middle of the room.
“It’s bad for shidduchim!” the shrieker giggles. Eyes light up in comprehension. Heads nod in understanding. Professor smiles. Class moves on.
Just another evening in Touro College.
