The Shock and Horror

Gentle Readers,

Thank the Lord tonight before you go to bed that you do not have to endure the shock and horror of seeing me at your local eatery. It might cause sudden loss of appetite.

    Dr. Nokes, if we have to see a professor at supper, shouldn't it at least be the most dapper professor on campus?

    I was saddened by your absence of a bowtie :(

  2. I know that I didn't eat for hours after seeing you at Circuit City on Sunday.

  3. Interesting story from one of your students, but I was shocked. Flights actually leave the Birmingham airport?!

    I guess I'll have to use that airport the next time I fly to Alabama. Last summer I got stranded in Montgomery for an extra day, on a business trip, because there were so few flights scheduled out of the airport that the airline staff couldn't get me an alternate route home.

    At least the Biscuits were playing that day and I got to see Wes Bankston, oh and get his signature on my Biscuits cap. Gotta love minor league baseball.

    No bowtie indeed. =(

    I know what you mean about Circuit City -- I didn't go to Wal-Mart for a month after I saw this:

    you must forgive my wife, though -- she's a good writer, but she does tend to use her talent to do nothing but make me look like a big blundering oaf all the time... :p

    I think they call it "Artistic Exaggeration," and if they don't they should.
