Kind Of Lemming-esque

One of my students looked at me very intently yesterday during conference. “You were in my dream last night,” she said, still staring at me.

Uh… awkward.

“You had your baby with you. It was adopted. You adopted a baby,” she reiterated, somewhat resolutely.

I wonder if she knows something I don’t.

The second conference of the morning was a no-show.

I try to be understanding. I know things come up. Maybe a space ship landed on the lawn outside the building and aliens are holding him at bay. I just don’t know.

But, in this age of technology, how about shooting me an email to let me know that, if I plan on discussing your paper this morning, it will be a very one-sided conversation? Oh, yes…that’s right… my email is down, so I have no way to communicate with my students. This is the academic equivalent turning loose a lemming and hoping that it chooses to avoid that cliff. Let’s hope the lemming choose to employ the aid of a GPS (I have taken this analogy too far, haven’t I?).
