- I seem to have developed the incessant need to slurp whatever beverage I drink. My spousal unit started complaining about this last week, and she claims this is a new occurrence. I have honestly been trying, but I can't seem to stop myself.
- When I'm teaching, I now talk with my hands. I don't normally do this. In fact, I normally make fun of people who do this.
- Since we got the laptop, I seem to play a whole lot more computer solitaire. This is a habit I thought I broke when working on the dissertation...when I broke it by removing everything off my computer. But I now find myself playing Kansas...and I can't stop!
Am I getting old, or are the years of teaching starting to take their toll? Will I be a blithering idiot in five years? I mean, more than I am already...
