"The Humerus Is At the End of the Table."

Anne-with-an-e is taking an anatomy class.

"Mom," she said, "this class has given me the opportunity to say things to my classmates that I never thought I'd have to say."

"Like what?" I asked.

The following are actual (or very close facsimiles of) things she said today:

"I'll go get us some femurs."

"Oh, look. A pile of knee caps."

"Could you pass me a rib?"

"Here's a leg, in case you need one."

"I have two right clavicles here. Where's a left one?"

"Can I borrow this tibia?"

In contrast, the most interesting thing I said today was, "I'd better change my shirt before dinner. I just know I'm going to dribble pizza sauce on myself."

Yes, it's quite humorous.
