The class I am teaching in the Spring is already filled to the max and so I am getting emails now from students asking for overrides to exceed the enrollment limit. Many of them start off:
Dear Professor Paca
I am of course not a professor. However, I just realized that I once created a meme of my own in which one item was "Three things you'd like to hear." The first one being:
3 Things I'd like to hear:
- "Dr. Paca?" To which I would reply, "Please just call me paca."
That was June of last year. And I guess now it's happened. It will be much better if I were to actually deserve the title instead of just have it applied to me erroneously, but I will take what I can get.
Here's the rest of that meme. Since most of my readership has turned over since then, you are all encouraged to do the meme yourself.
And since I was actually writing fiction a bit back then, yes, my third item under "three things I'd like to hear" was:
- Overheard on the street, "Have you read paca's new book? I got it last weekend at Borders."
By the way, is this amusing at all anymore? Or this?
