Grammar Lesson 8 Years Later

What a day! I started out my morning chauffeuring my veterinarian husband around town. No, this isn't part of my new job as practice manager. But I did get a Panera lunch out of the deal. Instead, I was taking the guest veterinarian to talk to area campers about being a small animal veterinarian. The non-profit (same place I worked previously) runs preschool and school-age camps all summer long. Camps are theme-based and include a field trip. This week campers were junior veterinarians in training. And the field trip came to them.

The kiddos had great questions, and the hubster enjoyed interacting with them. And of course the added live kitty was a huge hit.

Non-sequitur coming up...

So this takes me to the most important part of today's post: shopping. After work, I had to run up and pay my bill at a local department store. I know that I can sign up for automatic payments and/or even send my payment in the mail, but I choose to never do that. Why? If I were to do that, I would forgo a quick shopping trip. I bought a couple of cardigans marked down to $4.99. I am a cardigan addict! 

Non-sequitur #2...

Okay, I lied. Shopping was not the most important part of today's post; rather that I saw one of my former students. I not only saw her but stopped and chatted for a little bit. After 8 years, she looks the same (can't say the same here). Funny thing. I only remember two types of students: the intellectuals and the "recalcitrants" or hybrids of both. She was definitely a hybrid. 

She's now an occupational therapist. She asked me if I was still teaching. And when she found out that I wasn't, she seemed shocked. She said, "Why? You were such a good teacher."was shocked that came out of her mouth. Even more shocked when she said, "You were so hard on us when it came to grammar. But when I had to write my thesis for my master's degree, I remembered everything you taught us."


Have a wonderfully, word-filled Wednesday.
