Last night we had a small celebration to mark the end of summer Greek. They still have to take their final exam and I still have to write and then grade their final exam, but we finished class yesterday.
One of the things I learned was that I was nowhere near imaginative enough as a child at finding ways to escape school sports. One guy admitted that he had invented a phobia of organised sports and been persuasive enough in this that he had been allowed to take ‘correspondence course bowling’ instead. I want that phobia! What was really hilarious was that this same guy had applied for and been given a college scholarship in ‘exercise physiology’ much to the disbelief of his school.
