If Jeremiah was in Fact a Bullfrog, Justin is a Great and Mighty Sea Monkey.


I delayed posting today, because I believed that I would have incredibly good news to report to you. Instead, I just have pretty good news.

Tomorrow is the start of Easter Break. I suspected that this evening's class of 20 would be rather thin, as it is so very tempting to start Easter break just a few days early.

For that reason, I prophesized, and then wrote down my belief that less than half the class would be in attendance. My prediction was 9 students.

In fact, there were 17. A lesser man (Harvey Oswald, Most of the Muppets, etc.) would certainly be impressed by the improbable accuracy I achieved.

But to my mind the event suggests that I have not exactly sealed up the title of most accurate prophet in the fourth quadarant.

Because I thrive on challenge, this event reminds me that I have an area to improve in. And if my powers of prediction serve, I believe that on April 31st 2007, my gift (what else can you call it?) will be greatly enhanced--almost beyond belief.

confession time. I paid em off. I just wanted you to feel loved!

also, darling, the parenthesis in your tags are lonely. Let them have their mates, otherwise I shall be forced to assume that yours is a black, black heart.

I look forward to what will definitely be the most accurate April 31 prediction ever.

The parenthesis are having affairs with differing thoughts. It is sordid the way they carry on, I tell you! They need to get a room.

Too_Lively said...

Parentheses, I mean, both of them.

too_lively,

My, oh, my. You do love your 19th century lit. don't you?

If contemporaries were to express shock at punctuations having an affair, they would never go so far as to call it 'sordid.'

anonymous,
All that sweet talking, isn't going to get you the winning lotto numbers.

Or will it?

I guess only, I know.

taihae,

Aren't all punctuation lonely? Even when they are together?

Sigh,
