1) A long conversation with a good friend about some rather bizarre ideas she had about men and sex
Hope I dispelled some myths there…. Thanks for the insight in the female mind. I am now 100 percent sure I’ll go to my grave without ever fully understanding what it must be like to be a woman. The mystery keeps things exciting. I’ll never grow tired of learning a tiny bit more.
2) A violin player tells me she wants to quit the violin and runs into my new tactic to handle quitters
I simply told her to quit immediately. If she’s born to play the violin she will continue no matter how many people will tell her to quit.
Do you have a thing you can’t quit?
I’m not talking about an addiction, I’m talking about a calling.
No, those voices telling you to eat the chocolate cake are not a calling. Yes, you can have the chocolate cake. I’m on a diet, see number 5.
3) Some of my students are funny, so funny that one class is like a comedy academy
How do you count cows?
With a cowculator.
Ok, maybe you should have been there…
Also, I added a picture of a buffalo to this post, because the look of cows creeps me out.
Never fails to remind me of certain people.
Ok, now I’ve gone and insulted cows. My bad.
3.1) A budding artist came to tell me she can do the artwork for a boardgame we are developping
I love encouraging young talent and enterprising spirit. Which is kinda hard, because our obsolete school system kills creativity and wrecks initiative.
4) I totally overslept this morning but arrived on time AND went running for the first time in a long time
I had the advantage that the snow is gone, otherwise I couldn’t have run to the tram stop.
5) I’m on a zero sugar diet
Which is surprisingly easy if you eat eggs.
