|Dym Whitt, Time wasting expert, laughs a lot.|
The weekend course is one of many being offered this year by the Bridgeport Community College. Whitt, 57, noted time wasted specialist, signed on with the staff to teach three weekend classes this winter. Enrollment has been heavy and the demand may lead to additional classes in the Spring.
This weekend's course began Friday evening with registration and a social hour at Star Gazer's, a bar Whitt frequents when looking for things to do.
Class began Saturday morning sometime between 7:30 and 9:45, with a meet and greet hand shake from Whitt. With over 50 students in attendance, Whitt extended the first period until 10:30 and then let students have a break.
Promptly at 11:05, it was think tank time and a large glass fish tank was wheeled into the room and each member of the class was instructed to peer into the tank, choose a fish, and follow it as it swam around. At noon, Whitt asked each student what they thought their fish had been thinking as it swam around.
Lunch hour came next, followed by a free time period to let students ponder what they had learned thus far. The last class of the day Saturday, had students watching Whitt's home movies and guessing where the movies were taken and what was going on. All agreed it had been a fun day and looked forward to Sunday's class. Whitt with a laugh, mentioned to OFF THE WALL NEWS, that anyone reading this story would be welcome to join his next class...
