A Childfree Mother's Day

  1. A student emailed me asking about grades and wishing me a happy mother's day. I ignored both parts.

  2. After the church'n'brunch crowd died down, I went to the cafe to grade the last few papers. Done grading!

  3. I called my mom for advice on whether I should give a student a D despite the fact that she was failing by two different criteria described in the syllabus. (She was really close to the D/F border.) Mom agreed with my position that close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
