Ran into a former student from OHS last night in Aaron Bros… didn’t know her at first, but she recognized me (part of that whole ce-leper-ty status Lisa says all teachers have: part celebrity, part leper). When I introduced Lisa to her, she told my wife (unprompted) that she had taken an English class from me, but she lost interest when we hit Shakespeare… “It was too complicated,” she said. “Still is.”
Kinda ironic given the launch of this venture.
So all that stuff I wrote earlier in the week? Guess that was shot through the prism of golden idealized nostalgia…
Just a guess, but I don’t think she’ll be joining us for this endeavor.
