As part of the News Writing class, I had to find a favorite Morningside memory and a knock-knock joke. I received the favorite memory from Dr. Ryan Person. He’s only been at Morningside since last year, so when I asked for a favorite memory, he first said, “Oh my gosh, you totally put me on the spot.” He thought for a bit, looking at the wall as if it would jog his memory. The memory he ended up choosing was last year’s Christmas at Morningside Performance. He said he loved the collaboration of Morningside’s musicians.
The second item I needed was a knock-knock joke. Turning the corner, I ran into the perfect person: John Kolbo. He seemed a little confused by my request for a knock-knock joke. He seemed to believe I was giving him a joke before he understood I needed one him. The joke went: Knock-knock. Who’s there? Dwanye. Dwanye who? Dwanye the bathtub, I’m dwowning. We laughed. “Put my name on it,” Kolbo said, “everyone will understand.”
