Trojans and Cherry Cokes

A student in my first class today knew the story of the Achilles heel. This made me so happy that I bought him a Cherry Coke when we went on break.

It's the first time in four years that a student knew about it.

Also, nobody giggled when he said "Trojan."

College is different than middle school in most ways. In other ways, it's kind of the same.

This same student also understood what "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts" meant. It was lovely to watch him explain it to the boys behind him, none of whom was certain of the meaning, but all of whom thought it probably had something to do with fraternities.
