My student got 100 on last weeks discussion. What he wrote tonight was so beautiful it made want to cry in my sensitivity over the fragility of love and loyalty. Remind me to to it to you. I wish we hadn't been doing Othello at this point in time. It adds to the pain of Valentine's Day! We discussed everything so deeply that when he started reading the other peoples answers he says "this is why I feel so alone in the world." It became clear that most had not read as close as he did and it was surface lazy reading to get the assignment done. We discussed surface readers and how people put themselves into the character instead of looking at the character Shakespeare wrote. He never ceases to amaze me. He is writing his one required response. Hopefully it won't take to long.
aftet my conversation about Othello tonight I was driving and crying all the way home till I got pulled over right in front of the valley. The officer asked me if I knew how fast I was going and I told him actually I didnt because the odometer was broken and there was no traffic to judge, it being close to 10 and all. He said I was going 80 miles an hour to which I exclaimed, " I was not! This rig doesnt even go that fast!" I guess I didnt take into account that the hoses and the truck was feeling the need for speed. The nice officer told me to slow down and have a Happy Valentine's Day! lol ok. i ltolf him happy fsy but iy soybrf witj frminir rhyne.
