Just when you think your day can’t get any worse…after waking up three students during a state writing test–A STATE TEST! THEY FELL ASLEEP!–and answering the SAME RESEARCH QUESTION that I’ve been addressing IN CLASS for FIVE WEEKS; yes, just when you think there is absolutely nothing to be grateful for in this frozen sunless tundra as you “earn minor ducats at a thankless job,” you come home to this:
