1. My favorite way to teach: turn the students loose to write wherever they please -- just turn it in before the end of class. Talk individually with students who want help. It's what I call an adult classroom. It's freedom.
2. Great late afternoon stop at Sixteen Tons. Drank some Claim 52 Storm Bringer Stout. It was a little heavy on the hops for my taste, but that didn't stop me havin' a few. Talked with Paul about church history and Russian literature and teaching the humanities/writing. Had some good laughs and conversation with Abi. I like it when she pours the beer. Had a good hand shake with Ryan. And, as always, enjoyed shooting the breeze with the Deke. It was quiet, an easy environment to converse and laugh in: Sixteen Tons at its best.
3. I like those pizzas from Whirled Pies and brought home a large Willameat for me and the Deke. Oh my!
