Another Reason to be Glad I Teach English

I read a research protocol today that involved counting and measuring mouse feces.

I've never had to do that as a lit prof. What's more, I've never had to write up a protocol asking permission to do that.

Life's looking pretty good right now!


  1. Indeed!

    Since my husband is a math teacher, I feel grateful on a regular basis. In the evenings, he preps Calculus lectures and I read literature.

    But there are times that I begrudge him, and those are when he is relaxing or surfing or doing whatever it is that he does because he doesn't have stacks and stacks of grading or have to re-read lengthy texts.
