SCENE: M.A.A. STUDENT CHAPTER MEETING, sparsely populated by STUDENTS and PROFESSORS. Student president BEN, seated at the front of the room, is inexplicably wearing a faded tee-shirt that reads “COLLEGE MOM.” TRAVIS, a professor, is among the group.
BEN: I hope everyone had a good Pi Day yesterday.
The STUDENTS and PROFESSORS murmur assent.
BEN: Any ideas on what we should do for Pi Day next year?
TRAVIS: No, but I would like to propose that we set aside the day after, March 15, to celebrate the square root of minus one.
BEN: March 15?
TRAVIS: Yeah. I figure we can call it the “i‘s of March.”
The STUDENTS groan collectively.
BEN: Oh man, that’s terrible. Just terrible.
TRAVIS: I’m not taking abuse from a guy in a tee-shirt that says COLLEGE MOM.
BEN: Et tu, Brutus?
