For reasons that even I don’t understand, I find myself thinking a lot about improving schools. And yesterday was one of those joyous experiences where several different thoughts suddenly overlapped, forming something new. One of my professors is an adjunct professor who teaches at several different schools. And she was talking about how it seemed [...]
Even if you have no clean spoons, eating out of measuring spoons is not a good idea. They’re pretty deep, which makes it hard to eat out of. The good news is that I know exactly how many teaspoons of Dip n’ Dots I had.
