A tragic week

Bad things seem to come in waves. My poor students seem to be facing an inordinate amount of personal strife--family deaths, deaths of grandmothers, unbearable menstrual cramps, and an infected piercing...

Goodness, but I don't remember my own freshman year being so traumatizing.

My friend, an instructor at the community college, had a new one this week: "I'll have to turn my paper in next week. I spilled bong water on it." I can't believe a student actually said that to her!
