Back to School Monday's.


As the immortal Shakespeare said in Richard III Act 1, "Now is {the beginning of the Fall Semester.}"

One of the most delectable dimensions of teaching is the opportunity to absterge past transgressions and begin anew.

I mean teaching is so much more forgiving than writing. One semester you can imitate the practices outlined in Cicero's On the Orator and 16 weeks later you can imitate the retro-comedy of Lenny Bruce. A bad sentence doesn't hang forever in the classroom.

Now for all eternity, the fact that I tried to work 'absterge'(see above) in to a sentence will be known.

Tomorrow morning I will try to work Quetalcaol in to a sentence. If that doesn't work out there is always next semester to try to work it in, in a more polished manner. And if not in the spring, there is always the summer.

Otherwise, I may have to join a chat room to put my vocabulary on a worthy, yet forgiving, display.

I thought back to school time was the time to anew heavy drinking, casual sex, and all night cram fests.

One semester you can use the beer bong (ol' bubbly) and 16 week later absterge that bong for a frozen pear bong (ol' marywanny).

But it's been about 15 years since I've been in college so maybe times have changed!

There is no such word as absterge. To purport that there is is just so much persiflage.

Jenn said...

Shall I absterge thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more Quetalcaol,
Rough winds doth shake the darling buds of May....

on the offchance that you actually read my blog (which I doubt since you never leave a comment)...it's gone private which means you need an invite from me if you wanna read it.

So shoot me an email if you do.

Otherwise...And summer's lease hath all too short a date
