There are any number of things a student will endure throughout their career in law school. You stay up all night trying to study, you get so stressed out that you develop any number of addictions to caffeine, smoking, or drugs, and/or all of the above.
At one point, you're bound to get called on the one time you're unprepared. Sometimes, you are prepared, but you still don't know the answers and you just look stupid anyway. But this kind of thing you expect.
What you don't expect is to get ambushed by some heinous fart while sitting in the middle of class. This is what happened in property today. There I am, trying to absorb our property teacher's lecture on fee simple, when I get attacked by this odor. I almost fell off my chair trying to scoot as far back as I could. Of course, it's not like I had anywhere to go, everyone knows how narrow the space is between rows.
It's completely unexpected, you have no where to escape, and you have to sit there and pray for the smell to hurry up and dissipate before you start gagging, because yes, it's really THAT BAD.
