this is why Facebook is evil

October 16, 2007

You know those friends you had in college, the ones who were really wicked smart but also smart enough to be funny about it, funny in a sort of nerdy way, like quoting Augustine on how math is possibly of the devil when they were math majors, and who could drink more than you thought humanly possible and do really crazy things on the weekends but then get up on Saturday morning to give a talk at some conference being held on campus, and then go drinking with the other nerdy conference attendees and talk about math or physics but also get really crazy about SEC football? And they might also be the kind of people who make Long Island Iced Tea in giant Gatorade coolers intead of in pitchers and start fires behind their fraternity houses with the old furniture they hated, and do things like watch The Sound of Music with The Wall synced up in perfect time?

How weird (scary, bizarre) is it to discover those friends are college professors now?

    I used to think the same thing when all of my college friends became high school and junior high music teachers. Then I realized that that’s probably worse than me teaching at the graduate level. At least I’m not corrupting as-young minds.
