I've got work to do, exams to grade, student's to fail, and every time I kill a minute or two and check out our web site, one of you yahoos wax longingly about this tobacco or that, and I think to myself, "self", I say, "you have that very tobacco in the basement, and you haven't opened that jar in many a year, I'll bet a bowl full of it would taste wonderful right about now", and the next thing you know I"m loading my pipe, making another Manhattan, and heading out back to the woods to cavort with the coyotes and deer, and my work doesn't get done.

And another thing, you guys, ....wait a minute, I'll be right back, that bowl of aged Va flake is calling my name...

If I remember my pedagogy, around that third Manhattan, grading gets a loooot easier.

Doc and Natch, I could have used a couple of instructors like you two in college Laughing I would have carefully turned in my papers after most of the other students so it would be near the bottom of the pile, putting it smack dab into the 'Third Manhattan' zone Cool

If your students only knew what your favorite leaf was, imagine turning in your paper with a tin of...

Straight A's all the way! cheers

Boy have times changed.
My collage professors didn't smoke, didn't drink and graded papers with the tenacity of a German Field Marshall.

I think a few of them did cavort with coyotes though.

Geez Natch, maybe with the course curriculum outline they should include an intimate " Proffesors Personal Preference and Hobby " section,,,

A true anecdote from a friend who went to Penn State. Final exam in a big room with maybe a hundred people taking it. Toward the end, one guy who the proctor's seen cheating brings his paper up to turn in.

Proctor says, "You were cheating. I'm confiscating your exam."

Cheater says, in a tone of mock indignity, "Do you know who I am ?!"

Proctor says, "No."

Cheater says, "Good !," jams his paper into the middle of the pile before the proctor can react, and splits.

What a Face

Natch,

Sometimes you just have to get your priorities in order and it sounds like yours are right in line!

Mike, I work with some Profs that I'm rather sure do more than "cavort" with hairy, wild, mean things! But we don't want to go there. affraid

Interesting that you guys picked up on the grading exams aspect, but my intent was more the seduction of tobaccos when I have work to do aspect. I obviously don't grade exams while drinking Manhattans, that would be totally inappropriate.

For the quality of some of these papers, straight shots of 151 rum after each red mark I make is much more productive! lol!
