Back to my recurring Real Estate Nightmare
Tonight is Monday. All day I dread that class. Ick. I spent a few hours studying the textbook (reading the phone book is more interesting) and almost missed picking up my daughter at the bus stop. We’re having a test tonight. So far I’ve averaged between 70 – 80% on all of the tests, but as I lose steam in the class I lose focus.
Last Wednesday my evil teacher singled me out for some prime haw-hawing. She thinks it’s funny to point out to a student how stupid their question is – I think it stifles free exchange of ideas, but what do I know? Hey, as long as she gets a laugh, who cares who’s expense it’s at? Besides, I didn’t think my question was THAT stupid.
Tonight my head is staying down and I’m knitting a sock while I think of creative ways to avoid answering questions or answering them. I’ve stopped taking anything larger than a sleeve or sock to knit because it becomes an item of comment and – sadly – ridicule. This woman doesn’t have a very happy life, and it shows.
