Arrrr, matey

I was talking to The Doktah last night, and we discussed the possibility of her wearing an eye patch on September 19, which is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. I was skeptical that, as an actual professor, she could get away with it. “Don’t you have to be all professional or something now that you are in a position of authority?” I asked.

“I don’t know,” she replied. “I mean, on my most casual day, when I wear jeans, I still look far better than The P.I. used to look on his best day.”

“That may be true,” I said, “but there is a difference between the look of ‘Absentminded, Schlumpy, Chalk-stained, Untucked Professor’ and that of ‘Insane Professor Inexplicably Wearing an Eye Patch.’”

By mid-September I expect that the students from that semester will no longer think that an eye patch is the most inexplicable part of my personality.
