Hiram Is Here, and He's Baffled By All the Bakers.
Anyway, during most of the 2000s, I just didn't have many students like that. I sensed they had their fun on the weekends, and found enough beer cans around campus on Monday mornings to know they were partying.
But in the past couple of years, I'm catching a whiff of weed in classes. Am I crazy? Is there an uptick in pot smoking in the 2000-teens?
I have a 9 am class and it's a little cramped. (We don't have Yaro's yawning windows!) We've had some cool mornings recently and I can smell weed on the jackets and sweaters of some students. It's not overpowering, and nobody is like Spicoli, but at least a few students seem blissful and peaceful and ready to listen - but not talk - as we cover some bitching Walt Whitman.
What's it like where you are? Is pot making a comeback? Do you have boozers? Do cokeheads still exist? Do meth kids even GET to class?
I'm baffled, and I knew right where to turn!
PS: To the RGM, please note I sent this in on Tuesday; that used to be my day! Oh, the new kids don't care.
