A Sweet Welcome Back
As I write this, most courses for the Fall 2010 semester will already have met once. It’s hard to believe that summer is over and that the new school year has officially begun.
But there is candy (see above) to sweeten the transition. The bowl in the photo–taken just minutes ago! it’s still full!–features various departmental favorites: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers Minis, and two varieties of Hershey’s Nuggets. It also features miniature Tootsie Rolls, Double Bubble gum (so delicious, and yet … so fleeting), Smarties, and various hard candies which may well languish there until 2011.
Ah, the office candy bowl. Therein resides an archive of our daily lives circa 2010. On the go, multitasking, social networking, with nary a spare minute for refueling, let alone a leisurely meal.
So, grab some candy and your caffeinated drink of choice, and welcome back!
