And I'm completely confused because I'm right here! How can I be "there?" But I turn around and look anyway and am totally surprised because there I am! Some professor (well, I know which professor *now,* but then I didn't) had put my picture on the wall outside his door.
We decided that what was strange about this was not merely the unexpected nature of seeing yourself on the wall, but the way in which someone can use the picture of you to create a fascinating binary with sociopolitical undertones.
Not sure my mom's gonna like it...
ps: if you didn't get a Valentine from us it's not because we don't love you it's because I don't have your address. if you leave your name & address in the comment section (or just email me if you'd rather be all private) then I'll add you to our Valentine's list!
