If It's Tuesday, I Must Be Baffled By an Eager Beaver.
Tony Culkin is in my Fall freshman writing class. How do I know? Because he's written to me to tell me about it. He's excited.
This happens. I usually don't fuss too much. I get emails about books, about an early syllabus. It's usually limited and not a big deal
But Tony. Tony has announced himself to me three times via email. He also has left a note under my office door that I unfortunately found one day when I went to clear out some old files.
I hate Tony Culkin already.
I'm baffled today because Tony Culkin has sent me three short stories to read. These are his short stories. There are sand monsters in them. He wants to know which publications I read and which ones would be right for his work.
It's 2 weeks until class. Do you think Tony can wait?
