It is so hard to lecture when I feel as if I have knives in my throat.
I'm done teaching for the day, so I'm going to cancel office hours, go home, brew some tea, and grade essays until my eyes also feel as if they have knives in them.
Wish I could just lay around and read or watch TV. Wouldn't that be great?
Therein lies the difference between olympic athletes (who train and complete through all sorts of pain and illness) and me*.
*Or, perhaps, I should say one of the many, many differences.
