Thanks to the Universe for today's two second blog post. And to you, dear student.

Hmmm....maybe he goes to more than one and just mixed them up?

Or, maybe not.

Groan.

(I took an un-scientific poll -- my kids are pretty sure that all their classmates know the name of their school. But you never know.)

Where am I? What's my name?

That is great. I love when I get letters of appeal for more aid from students who cannot spell the name of our college. I feel that there should be a very basic admissions requirement to be able to spell and say the name of the college to which you wish to be admitted. Is that too much to ask?

That student could some day be a vice-presidential candidate. Who am I? Why am I here? Of course, they won't capitalize the "I". I hope you told him/her Harvard.

In the manner of the student's question, you could respond: "It's _______ again."

Once, many years ago, I was in line at the post office and after placing my order for stamps with the nice lady I was writing my check when I stopped, stared blankly at her for a few seconds, and then finally had to say "What year are we in?"

Just sayin', it could happen to you.
