there are no substitute professors
I would love to attend the Championship banquet on Monday. But if I did, I would be probably be without employment on Tuesday. Unfortunately, I have only three weeks of instruction left in the semester and there are no substitute teachers available for my classes. Plus I haven't add a day off since my birthday on September 30th-that means working everyday, including Saturday and Sunday,and I hope to get Thanksgiving off, but there is no guarantee-we had a professor quit two weeks before the beginning on the semester and we were already one person down as it was (there were only seven of us to start, so we are now down to five).
But I am taking a half an hour off to listen to comp-then it's back to work-and yes I'll be listening here in the office on Saturday and Sunday.
The Ring family will be represented at the track tomorrow by my brother, Professor Pete-yep there is another one in the family-he teaches at LMU over there by LAX!
