I was going there to meet with one of the program directors, a Ph.D in the Physics department. I jokingly wondered to myself if he would be like one of the characters on "The Big Bang Theory" (TV show I reluctantly admit to sometimes watching).
I arrived at his office precisely three minutes before our scheduled meet. He is a very personable and laid-back man who totally reminded me of Howard Wolowitz. Not really in mannerisms, but put about 25 years on Wolowitz, and he's Dr. C at the university. Ironically, Wolowitz is the only one of the four main geeks in "Big Bang Theory" who is NOT a physicist.
But enough about fictional characters - really, my kids watch the show, that's the only reason I know of it!
So we had a nice little "interview", mostly talking about how
Then, he approved my application, we both signed our respective signature boxes, and that was that. So I'm in and fully on board to do the program now, after sitting on the fence for the last couple of years.
As luck would have it, however, we got hit with more snow on Tuesday night, and yesterday morning was another 2-hour delayed start to school that I had to call in "overscheduled" for. The boss got a crosswalk sub for me AGAIN.
There goes my crossing guard tenure. At least my dog still loves me.
