dream.20070821: hold them back

by Rob Friesel

The students have become teachers?  You have returned to high school as a student; people that you have taught in the past now stand at the chalkboard, doing their best to explain concepts that you long ago taught them.  (Wait, back up.  Did you even teach them?)  They criticize your in-class work; they mark it wrong even though you know that your response is the best approach.  The instructors cement your failure by pointing out that you have not brought your homework assignment to class.  But how could there have been homework?  It’s the first day of class.  Even so, you know that the two-page’s worth of homework is in your locker; if only you knew where your locker was or how to get inside.
