Today

This morning I gave the last lecture in my course on the physics of molecules. I'm always sad to part with a class after getting to know the students, but you can't let on you know. When it was over, I simply looked them in the collective eye and said, 'thank you.' And they started clapping! I didn't know what to think. They must have been glad to finally be rid of me.
Then on the way home I bought 16 roses, one for each year of our marriage. Some of them of course had more thorns than others, but a rose by any other name still smells as sweet.

I'm pretty sure that you should take the applause as a compliment, oh cynical one.

Very sweet to hear about the roses...
