A woman was sitting in the waiting room for her first appointment with a new dentist. She noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, she remembered that a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in her high school class so many years ago. Could this be the same guy I had a crush on way back then? she wondered.

She quickly discarded any such thought when she met the balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face.

He’s way too old to have been my classmate, she thought to herself.

Still, after he examined her teeth, she asked, “Did you happen to attend Morgan Park High School?”

“Yes! I’m a Mustang,” he gleamed with pride.

“When did you graduate?” she asked.

“1959,” he replied. “Why do you ask?”

“You were in my class!” she exclaimed.

“Really?” he said, looking at her closely. “What did you teach?”

Ok enough …. I can hear you laughing where I am! I have been quiet for a few days. Were away and organizing our latest field trip to Rwanda. I just passed through Zimbabwe and keep them in your prayers. Just had a cup of tea for Z$ 30 000 000 (yip you read correctly – Thirty million Zim dollars). My total bill added up to Z$ 189 000 000 Zim dollars – about R85 or US$10. Absolutely outrageous. Hope you all are doing well – wherever in the world you are.

Nat if you are reading this – where are you brother?
