Got one of those typical letters from the vice president who spent the last two weeks on vacation and missed all the fun. "Dear Dean Suzy, I have a delegation of carpet weavers coming next Thursday, can you give them a talk about the weaving management program and show them through the weaving labs? I have you down for 2-5pm."
My answer: Hi Veep! I'm no longer dean. I do hamster fur weaving. And I'm booked on Thursday teaching anyway. Love and kisses, Just Plain Suzy.
