Made My Night
Two girls called me over at the end of tonight's class and began conversation with "Don't take this the wrong way but we have been observing you." Right away I got worried but I said, "Don't worry. I learn about teaching from what my students tell me, especially my best students." (These two girls are running high A's.) They said, "No, nothing like that. It is your calves. We have been watching all term and you have great ones. How do you get them like that? What kind of exercises do you do? We work out all the time and can't get calves like yours."
I said bless you. This was the nicest thing I heard in a long time. It really made my night.
