Ode to the Commencement of the School Year (Objet Trouvé)
In honour of my hard-working colleagues in the Imperial Faculty, I offer this nugget of wisdom, from the glamorous streets of New York City—
Teacher #1: So I decided what my big job switch will be in a couple of years. Teacher #2: What? Teacher #1: I'm going to be a party planner. Or, someone on the set of a TV show. Teacher #2: Huh? Teacher #1: Well, I was watching Rachael Ray the other day, and the camera pulled back, and there was this girl with a headset. Teacher #2: Yeah? Teacher #1: And that's what I want to do. I mean, teaching's nice, but you don't really get to interact with anybody, right? It's just us. And the kids. Teacher #2: Right. Teacher #1: Oh, God, when will this train get there? I want to start drinking!
