This poem of my childhood is in my head as I try to make my way through a large stack of articles:
The Homework Machine , oh the Homework Machine,
Most perfect contraption that’s ever been seen.
Just put in your homework, then drop in a dime,
Snap on the switch, and in ten seconds time,
You homework comes out, quick and clean as can be.
Here is is – “nine plus four?” and the answer is “three”.
I guess it’s not as perfect
As I thought it would be.
On another note, we have great departmental staff. Carol, Elaine, and Val make my office a great place to work.
