Talk Faster

Faculty Meeting day.┬áMy new name is Faculty Bleating. That’s mine. I have proof in a text to the wife. So don’t even go trying to make it viral and claim credit. Every faculty meeting reminds me of Dr. K. I was “diagnosed” with ADHD back when it was called being hyper, and the Ritalin dosages […]
