A discussion of continuing higher education, adult education, training,and related--and some unrelated--Tennessee topics.
A continuing educator walks into a bar
In Orlando. He says, "Give me three pints of beer, please."
So the bartender brings him three pints and the continuing educator proceeds to alternately sip one, then the other, then the third until they're gone.
He then orders three more and the bartender says, "Sir, I know you like them cold, so you can start with one, and I'll bring you a fresh one as soon as you're low."
The man says, "You don't understand. I have two retired continuing education colleagues, one in California and one in Mexico. We used to regularly meet for happy hour. We made a vow to each other that every Saturday night, we'd still drink together. So right now, my colleagues have three beers too, and we're drinking together."
The bartender thinks it's a wonderful tradition and every week he sets up the guy's three beers as soon as he enters in the bar. Then one week, the man comes in and orders only two. He drinks them, then orders two more. The bartender sadly says, "Knowing your tradition, I'd just like to just say that I'm sorry that one of your colleagues died."
The man replies, "Oh, they're fine. My doctor told me I needed to quit drinking."
