A Blackboard and a Coffin
I just read something funny in this great novel by Benjamin Prado that I want to use for my new article:
Sometimes, the only difference between a blackboard and a coffin is that, in the case of the blackboard, the dead man is located outside.
That’s how I felt yesterday during the first lectures of the semester. Students find it very hard to return to class after Christmas celebrations. I don’t blame them. January 7 is way too early to end the winter festivities.
