Snow Day!

My university has just cancelled day classes. I can’t remember the last time this happened.

On the one hand, I have a school-kid’s delight in an unexpected day off. On the other hand, I’m embarrassed to live in a town that would shut down for a few inches of snow. We didn’t do things like that in the Old Country.

I think I’ll go sit, with an expression of disapproval, in front of the fireplace and read Leigh Brackett and the Iliad. That will send the right message, I think.

  1. That’s the correct way to spend a snow day, yes.

    I’d like another snow day …

    Oh wait, are you a student also? I only knew/remember that you write.

      More snow days are okay with me.

      Actually, I teach at the university, but only practical topics: Latin, Greek, Classical Civ etc…
