Why I love teaching

It seems like it was just yesterday that we here at the Bike Garden were celebrating the end of finals grading and looking out across the vast, lolling landscape that is summer vacation; yet here we are, a scant two days from the start of the fall semester. It is as if the languid, pastoral, easy-livin' days were nothing more than an amusing little vapor.

And boy howdy, am I glad to see all the chaos start up again. Especially when former students drop by the office and bring me this:


Cream cheese cupcakes. Homemade. From scratch.

I have no idea how three of them went missing before I even left the office.
Really.
I do not.

  2. Darn those cupcake gremlins. Then again, it's probably good you have a bike with which to negate the "loss."

  3. Cream cheese cupcakes--doesn't that constitute some sort of bribe? And where can I sign up to be on the needs-to-be-bribed list?

  4. Ha! Said those students my way! (or the free food, either one really.)
