Again!

Yet another semester. Yet another discussion of the Earth's precession and long-term variations on the sky. Yet another young woman with her astrological sign tattooed on her ankle asking me if her sign is still "correct".

In front of the whole class, no less. And I'm a horrible liar, so I spoke the truth.

She didn't cry, though. I must admit I'm grateful.

You're not losing your touch, are you?

You need to make students cry!

CRY, DAMN YOU, CRY!

Sorry...Tutoring three kids a week (one for two days a week).

You should hand her an ad for a place that does laser removal.
