First Think, Then Talk

I had a chat with my professor(who also happens to be the chair of graduate admissions) about some topics in the class, then he started complaining about admissions, criteria, letters, GRE scores etc.

He looks over at me said, "You know, the graduate orientation in on Saturday." He laughs and continues, "I suppose someone could come in Thursday and then if you don't have to write then you'd be fine"

Before any brain cells could engage, my mouth replied,"Yeah, but who wants to waste a Shabbos like that."

I'm just glad the professor laughed.


  • Don't worry and second guess yourself so much :-)

  • You should invite him for a nice Shabbes, then, he will be able to place your automatic pilot reaction in a proper context (make sure to serve cholent!)

  • I was expecting worse...lol
    But it's always wiser to think then to end up with your foot in your mouth.

  • Don't worry about it - at least it turned out okay. What are you doing after grad?

  • I'm with prag, have him for shabbos. It might be fun. If he laughed he seems like a easy-going kind of guy, he might like it.

  • You strike me a brutally, beautifully honest, and tonight, you've proved it! :)

  • This post might get expanded in my personal favorite aspect of purim...

    second guesss, second look, anything as important as me to myself bears another examination

    it would be worth it just to see the look on his face. but i don't know...

    oh no. this is as bad as it gets.

    no worries, just a funny story. after grad.... taking over a govt. lab probably.

    it's good to hear from you.
    he is an easy going kind of guy but also 'very very reform'

  • sorry, trw,

    thank you for the compliment. i am currently trying to understand how to retain the honesty with being quite so brutal.
