May The Horse Be With You.


June 23, 2010 by sandwichcontrol

A few years back, Pancake Land and I had a class together, I can’t remember what it was, but right before a test she whipped out this little plastic horse. When I asked what the horse was for, she told me it was a good luck charm. I don’t know which of us said it, but somebody said “May the horse be with you.” It was brilliant and quite appropriate given the situation. From there on out, it became the thing to say before a test. We would draw a little horse on test paper and scantrons to ensure that the horse was with us. This is where my luck hit a snag.

I don’t have scantrons in my chemistry class. There is no writing on the test. It is all clicker. Remember me telling you about the evil little remote. Well, yesterday the horse was not strong with this one. I calculate that I probably got a 74 or 75% on the test. I know that I missed a few because I did not know the material. I know this because they looked totally foreign to me. That accounts for maybe 3-6 of my incorrect answers, which still would have landed me in “A” territory, but just barely. The rest of my incorrect answers were from sloppy mistakes such as typing in 18 into my calculator instead of 28 for the atomic weight of Nitrogen.

I am going to have to get a My Little Pony sticker for my clicker or something. I have got to get the horse back. I would draw a horse on my scratch paper, but it gets recycled after the test is over and therefore the horse would not travel with my test to the other side. My test went instantly, and wirelessly to the other side. No spirit horse guide needed. The bastards are messing with my system. Maybe I’ll hire one of the tech people to write a little bit of clicker code and make me a clicker horse. Then, every time I answer a question the teacher’s computer would whinny. Hrm… on second thought, that would probably get old very quickly. Not to mention it would only be a matter of time before people caught on that it was me that made it do that.

Enough of that silliness. Last night was the start of this season of Wipeout, tonight is Top Chef, and tomorrow night is yet another new episode of Wipeout. My week nights filled up this week. How am I supposed to get any Spirit Tracks in, I mean studying chemistry in, when all of my stories are on?

Speaking of chemistry, it’s that time again. More soon. ~SC

P.S. Don’t have a cow, have a horse:

I shall name it Chester.
