At long last, the day has arrived! You are thrilled to be attending the Concretions conference.
 
As you approach the entrance to the conference location, your eyes nervously scan the crowds, searching for luminaries of the field. You spot the famous creator of that programming language you love, and your pulse quickens. You start to walk across the street toward him and then stop.
 
There, queued up with everyone else is Tallman, the founder of the CARIBOU Project! (CARIBOU stands for "CARIBOU's Acronym Reveals It Beats Out Unix", which is such a great acronym.)
 
You're shocked that you're this close to meeting the great Tallman, and you start wondering what you're going to say to him...
 
A loud honk from a truck startles you, and you find yourself standing in the middle of the street, holding up traffic.
 
You start dashing across the street to ask for autographs, and you're so excited that you completely fail to notice the open manhole until you've already started falling into it...
