|"You can stop. You've|
already won my heart."
Nice 22 year old woman comes up after the first meeting with her smartphone. She says, "I wanted to let you know some days that I absoLUTELY can't be in class."
She waits until I make a move to write them down.
9 classes. Out of 30. She has 9/30 classes where she already knows she's not coming.
She reads the list off and sometimes mentions why she's not going to be there - sister's out of town wedding (like on a Wednesday?) - but sometimes doesn't give any explanation.
I look at my list and then at her. "Why didn't you take a different class if this one seems to be a bad time for you.
"Oh," she said brightly. "This was the only section that fit my schedule."
