Teaching is all about the swag--let no one tell you otherwise--and I have received a great many presents from my students. I have three tins of chocolates, short bread biscuits, three coffee gift cards, a green shawl, and for some inexplicable reason, five bottles of lotion. My sister says lotion is the gift you give when you don't know what else to give. Maybe so. Or perhaps my students find me a tad bit dry, in more ways than one, and thought it to be a subtle hint. Whatever the case, I like the Gardeners Hand Therapy. It smells like pines.
