Both yesterday and today, I have come perilously close to being mean to people on the internet. This is not my normal mode, but lord, I have had no patience with fools lately. Query: do you think Sunday night's car accident could have affected my personality? Query the second: how long do you think this will last? Because if this is the way I'm going to be from now on, I'm going to have to rethink my whole teaching style, for starters.
