Well, here’s your dose of sap. I don’t know why, I just feel like I have to say this.
Today I went to class like normal. I sat down, and instead of our usual crazy raging prof who sounds like he’s going to blow a gasket all the time, the chair of the Psych department is standing in front of the class. He says, “Well guys, your professor won’t be teaching the rest of the class. He was in a car accident, he’s going to be ok, but he’s in the hospital and he has a fractured pelvis and broken ribs. So the rest of the semester will be guest lectures. He won’t be answering his phone at the hospital, he’s in a lot of pain, but he’s going to be ok.”
Just digest that for a while. We have a little over a month to go, and he doesn’t think he’ll be back! That’s one hell of a break. Maybe I’m just overly worried because after going to the school I did, they always tried to make things sound better than they were. So if we were told someone had a little fall, their head was split wide open and their brains were splattered all over. If the word from the ones informing us was that they might not return, they were pretty much dead. I want to believe the chair isn’t shooting us a line and this guy will be ok, but ya never know when all ya get is a PR statement. All I’m saying is you never know what can happen, so let the people you care about know how you feel! Ok I think that’s enough sap for now.
