Daily Prompt: Dream Teacher

Daily Prompt: Dream Teacher

You can choose any person from history to teach you any topic you want. Who’s your teacher, and what do they teach you?


 

Running from the car park to class the mantra “Oh shit, Oh shit, Oh shit” played over and over in my head. The words were perfectly synchronized with the pounding of my feet on the pavement. I was running late and I don’t like to be late, especially on the first day of class. I got to room 302 in the Murrow Building and screeched to a stop before I eased the door open.

A large man dressed in a black suit stood behind the lectern at the front of the class. Written on the chalkboard behind him, in a frightening hand was:

Theology 101
Dr. Lucifer

“Come on in TN,” he turned his smoldering eyes on me, “You’re just in time.”

A smiling man wearing a brown leather flight jacket and pleated khaki trousers stood behind the lectern at the front of the class. Written on the chalkboard behind him in firm block capitals was:

PRINCIPALS OF NAVIGATION
W. W. CORRIGAN

“Come on in TN,” he said with a Gulf Coast drawl and grin, “You’re just in time.”

A tall mustachioed man with a shock of white hair and big glasses stood behind the lectern at the front of the class. Written on the chalkboard behind him in neat script was:

Intro to Industrial Design
Prof. Roy Brown Jr.

“Come on in TN,” he said, “You’re just in time. We’re about to discuss the pros and cons of taking risks with your designs.”

  1. W. W. Corrigan always brings a giggle. Is anyone else old enough to remember? As for the others, I’d stay away from the Murrow Bldg. if I were you.
