I haven't shaved in, oh, a couple weeks. It doesn't look too bad. But I still don't look my age.
With the new semester has come a switcharound of students--about a third weren't with me last semester. One of the new ones told me yesterday that he and his friends (who had seen me walking around in my necktie) had assumed I was a student transferred in from "some Christian school."
When I was subbing (unless I was at an elementary school) (and even that was no guarantee) kids would ask if I was a new student.
I'm wearing a tie! I haven't shaved! I've even given up my backpack! What else can I do?
