You Might Need to Be a First Year Seminary Student for This to Make You Laugh

I think I wrote last fall about my nightmare in which the giant chess pieces in the first Harry Potter were transformed into Greek verb endings that went smashing and crashing off the board.

no... maybe you just have to have been a first year seminary student once in order to get a laugh. I'm a long way from my first year of seminary and I laughed!

Good luck on your finals. I know you will do well.

That is so funny--what your mind is full of! Good luck on your finals.

enjoy those finals.

I am going for film and experience to cause dreams.. I will show my students how to plant hundreds of tomato seeds and show them Attack of The Killer Tomatoes. should be a good week.

I laughed too! I guess I remember.

mompriest said... I wonder who would "win" the debate?

good luck on the finals. I assume you on a quarter system or tri-mester - and therefore have one more to do before summer break? Will you take CPE over the summer?
