Each moment an adventure...
You've heard the old saw about if a monkey sat down at a keyboard and typed for a million years, it would reproduce the works of Shakespeare?
I have a student whose brain works the same way.
You just never know what's going to come out of his mouth. I could say the strangest of words, like, say, I don't know, "effervescent," and out will come some strange mishmash of ideas and imagery-- kind of like a John Dos Passos novel, but drawn completely from pop culture and in particular Nick at Nite.
Frustrating? Fascinating? Entertaining? Endearing?
Depends on how well rested I am on any particular day.
Today? I was tired.
