In Which Innocent Class Discussions About Marriage Come Back To Bite Me In The Ass

My handsome, American ass.

Text message from a student, out of the blue: what’s your ideal fiancee like?
[I give my standard non-answer answer, about my ideal fiancé(e) being funny, intelligent, a good listener, etc.]
Student: haha.what about her face?

Great questions all around.

Andy and I are off on vacation tomorrow to Zhangjiajie, one of the most famous natural sites in China. We are going to hike and climb and possible spelunk. I plan on seeing enough large limestone pillars to make up for a lifetime of having seen very few limestone pillars of any appreciable size. Very excited for where life is taking me.
