pupil

This morning, reviewing the topics in a notice from a science journal, I noticed the heading "Pupil reaction". Hmmm. I wonder what was the topic of the questionnaire? Oh! Not that at all!

What is the connection between the light-reactive opening of an eyeball and a student at an elementary school?

The latter sense occurs in the text of some entries here, but never the first sense, and neither as a topic.

Much to my wonder, they are related.

I also found the term for the quality of being the class clown: pupillarity. :D Not really.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
