One of my students was at the library today and she popped in to my office to say hello, so I told her I wouldn't be back next year as I was going to Japan to teach English. After expressing surprise and disbelief that I'd actually want to do this despite all the fancy degrees I hold,* she wished me luck and said she hoped I would meet some fabulous Japanese businessman who would whisk me off my feet. Upon hearing that my boyfriend, who is accompanying me overseas, might have an issue or two about that scenario, she blurted out:
"You're bringing a sandwich to the restaurant???"
Mmmm, tasty :)
* This is the same student who, upon realizing I was an actual lawyer who'd been called to the Ontario Bar, once exclaimed, "Then why the hell do you work here at the library?!?!" But she also believes that once she graduates, she won't ever have to do legal research...HA!
