Small story related to my Favorite Gene Wilder movie

  1. Last year I took a class at the Harvard Extension School and on the first day of class we went around and introduced ourselves.
  2. We had to stand up, say our name and something about ourself. I was middle of the pack so I had time to decide what I was going to say.
  3. It seemed everyone before me said something interesting or was funny. And I'm getting kind of nervous at what I should say.
  4. Then it was my turn.
  5. I stood up and said, "My name is Matt, but most people call me [pause] Matt."
  6. I know that line isn't LOL funny but I think I might've heard one chuckle in the whole class.
  7. I like to imagine though, a few smiles on peoples faces who understood and appreciated the reference.
