Foot --> Mouth - 6/18/07
One last tutoring snippet before I retire for the summer (huzzah)…

On the phone today, returning a call I'd gotten about setting up an emergency finals sessions with one of my students…

ME: Hi, is Renee there?
HIGH VOICE ON OTHER END OF THE PHONE: No, she's not here.
ME: Oh, OK. This is her writing tutor. Is this her mother? Her sister?
HIGH VOICE: Uh… this is her brother.
I feel like the message I then left... never had a chance.
