First in a Series: Overheard Student Comments

Every day after lunch I have to walk for 20 minutes to keep my blood sugar in check. Doctor's orders. Because my building is located on the quad, I've taken to walking twice around the long rectangle of grass, trees, sidewalks, and buildings that comprised my university during its infancy.

I could find a place to walk indoors, but I enjoy knowing that the blaring prairie sun will help darken my already-impressive, pregnancy-induced upper-lip chloasma mustache. Also, walking outside allows me to overhear student conversations.

Today's Overheard Student Comment:

"Celtic myth rocks."
(female to female)

A student came up to ask me a reference question today wearing a T-Shirt that said: "Bored of Education". I was irked. I didn't show it, I just answered her question. But it irked me.

I'm getting old.

LOL! It's a funny pun but I would have been irked too. Just wait until she has to hold down a job and pay a mortgage. Life as a student won't seem so boring then. :-)

That sounds like a cool band name or a line of Celtic Mythological Jewelry!
