I Wanna Be The Teacher’s Pet

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

I started taking classes in September. It’s been almost 10 years since I did homework or took a test of any kind. It’s kind of fun. Mostly I enjoy accumulating points. My brother Aric asked if I was the teacher’s pet, which made me pause for a moment.

You see, GPH 436 is like going to a stand up show in an empty club. Anyone who’s ever been on stage knows how important the audience is. Unless you’re Don Hedeker, who can put on a manic show for a couple of goldfish, the audience can make or break a performance. My professor is a smart guy, but he definitely feeds off of his audience. When we ask questions and answer his, he’s a better teacher. So maybe I raise my hand more than the others, but I do it for the greater good.

(By the way, The Polkaholics will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary at Martyrs on November 9th. I guarantee it will be a fun show.)
