Favorite Line

Some lines, when you read them, just speak to you, you know? At least that's how it feel. So, today, before a meeting, I was prepping for tomorrow's first class, and read,

This is hell, nor am I out of it.
And I thought, yes. It somehow seemed so appropriate for the meeting at hand. For pretty much every meeting, just in case.

I've racked up nearly three hours of meetings today, though two ran under, and one over. The long one was actually helpful and turned out well, I thought. It's good to work with adults. The others were fine as meetings go.

And now, I have hours of grading before I sleep.

    "You know why they call them departmental meetings, don't you? Because while you arrive sane, you will surely depart mental." (I can't remember where I read that, or even if I'm quoting it exactly right, but I think it was attributed to Lorrie Moore, and I thought you might enjoy it.)
