I'm catching up on email. Among the gems, one of my colleagues on a committee has just noted that having [a little life experience] in [a specific academic field], s/he could teach introductory classes in that field.
So, really, I, having eaten for many years, could teach introductory nutrition.
And my friend over in economics likes to read novels, so she could teach intro to lit classes.
Except I think this committee colleague was serious.
