While waiting for her first appointment in the reception room of Dr. Marvin Cohen, her new dentist, Miriam Kleinman suddenly remembered that a tall boy with the same name had been in her high school class some 40 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, Miriam quickly discarded any such thought.

After Dr. Cohen examined her teeth, Miriam asked him if he had attended the same high school.

"Yes," he replied.

"When did you graduate?" Miriam asked.

Dr. Cohen answered, "In 1957."

"Why, you were in my class!" Miriam exclaimed.

Dr. Cohen looked at Miriam closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"
