Into The Home Stretch

The term paper, she is done and handed in. Le Thesis, she chugs along. I've got one final paper, one final exam, and a final quiz in Hebrew. I think I may be able to make it through this semester alive after all.

And, to my amusement, someone left a paddle at the Key Desk last night for me to find this morning. It's one of those big, solid chunks o' wood whose sole purpose in life is to elicit the response: "Thank you, sir! May I have another?" I've had it prominently on display this morning, and strangely enough, I've had much less whining and complaining than usual. I recommend this approach to everyone who has to deal with customers. A paddle on display saves much discussion.

Ooh, excellent idea. Now where’ll I get me one of those? It could come in handy. I like Nilmandra’s suggestion of having your fencing sword there too. We never had paddles at home either but I got a smack of the wooden spoon quite a lot as a child...

Hurrah for nearly being done with this semester! Only another few months and we'll have to start treating you with more respect ;-)

Considering it'll just be my MA, a simple "Yeth, marthter," will do nicely.
