<A former student, who delighted in teasing me my first three years teaching, came to visit me this week.>
“Hey, kid, you know what Miss VanSickle used to tell us like her first year teaching?”
“She told us that teaching was only temporary and she was going to make a living -”
“- being a published novelist, but look – she’s still here, six years later.”
“I hate you so much right now.”
“So how’s that book going?”
This kid legit made a three-year career out of teasing me about writing. For example, On my writing talent.
