In an after Christmas sale, I bought some quirky brogues from my all-time favorite clothing company, Boden. I don’t much care for fashion (Must work on this!), but I like 99% of the things I see in the Boden catalogue, so a pair of man-shoes seemed just the ticket to step into my final semester.
Unfortunately, the leather was kind of stiff, so I got blisters on both feet. I realized this in my office after teaching. Since I didn’t want to continue clomping around with raw skin, I went a-huntin’ for a Band-Aid, but none were to be found in my building. The next best solution?
Scotch tape. I taped up my blisters and went blissfully to my first class period of German101.
Other things: I listened to the Les Misérables original London cast recording on the bus and teared up when Jean Valjean sings to the dying Fantine. Then to cover myself, I pretend to yawn.
I also sent an request for more information to a British boarding school advertising a position for an ESL teacher. Just for kicks.
