A Shrewdness of Apes

Well, one small victory.... or two

The kid who was going to miss my class YET AGAIN, this time to go to a baby shower in Omaha?

His mother decided that that might not be a good idea, and so he was here today.

And a kid with whom I have been very firm all semester in the cafeteria, came up to me and hugged me out of the blue. It was like an attack hug-- it was over so quick, I almost missed it. Up from behind, a squeeze, and gone. He thinks he'll have enough credits to graduate at last after finals week.

I take 'em as I get 'em.
