Periodically I sermonize from the front of the classroom and yet they never chose to attend my church. At times I issue my State of the Way Things Are proclamations and yet they never voted me into office. Mainly, I like to think I teach. Still, every now and then I get a little ping back from the crowd and realize they are often paying attention when I am on one of my philosophical rampages, as evidenced by this student paragraph I just discovered in a pile on my desk:

“This weekend was great. I ate nachos. Then I watched TV. Next I watched more TV. Then my head became scrambled eggs.”
