Teacher tells his seminary graduate students that he forgot to bring either his laser or metal pointer to class to help him point out parts of the class website projected on the class whiteboard at the front of the class. He remembered about the pointer after he had already left home.
A short while later the electricity goes out in the seminary building due to bad weather.
The seminary rector suddenly shows up at the classroom door to give the teacher a flashlight to use, if needed.
He points out that the flashlight also has a built-in class pointer that is easily extended from the front of the flashlight.
And so, I got the pointer after all; power returned to the building; and the rest of the class went very well.
