In which I am a comedian

Snippet from class:

Me: "So what else do we know about this character? That she's an herbalist?"

Back row dies laughing. "Herbalist!"

Me, slow on the uptake, a few seconds later: "Of legal herbs--you know, healing herbs."

Talking about Medea? 'cause that's where I always get the herbalist snickering...

It wasn't Medea, but I had never heard the herbalist snickering before. It certainly made them sit up and take an interest, though!
