My Spanish Professor is a Genius.

Tomorrow's my final exam, and for part of it I have to prepare an essay about a strange personal experience, and then write it on the test.

Over my Spanish professor's tenure, she's no doubt read thousands of boring essays. I wonder how long it took her to assign interesting topics, like encounters with celebrities, and not what we're studying in school.

When I'm teaching ESL, I am going to require my students to tell me fascinating stories, too. This will do two things: 1) entertain me; and 2) give me story ideas.
