I missed the opportunity to post last night while away at a conference because I was besotted with the chance to respond to students’ email with a colleague as captive audience by my side. It is rare in the extreme to have someone with whom to commiserate while grading papers so I took advantage of us all.

Teaching, like parenting, is a thankless profession for which nothing can truly prepare one. Experience itself is unreliable because as soon as you solve for X, Y presents itself in X clothing. Go figure. So, for my money, good company with good food is the best palliative.
