About Me
I am a 62 year old Professor of Writing at Kean University. I love writing, thinking about words, and playing with language. Case in point--my wife brings me a clean pair of britches and says "Here's a pair of pants you can change into." I immediately think that this could mean 1: that I could insert my legs into the pants and pull them up around my hips, or 2: I could magically transform into a pair of pants. I told my wife about this conundrum and she just rolled her eyes and went on with the laundry. She does laundry--I do dishes.
My students like me because I have this strange notion that the University should be about them, not about the careers of faculty or administration. Weird, huh?

adipose
I like this word because of how it sounds. It's one of those words that sound cool but are about things that are not cool. Kind of like "diarrhea."
