Walking into town to grab a bite for lunch today, I found myself behind an Admissions tour, led by a student tour guide. Had you been there, you would have observed the following exchange:
Tour Guide: Our alumni are CRAZY!
Me: Hey! Watch it!
Tour Guide: ...um, about Oberlin! Crazy about Oberlin! They love this place! And we love them!
Me: Good save.
I laughed all the way back to my office. Mostly because when I was a student, I thought alums were crazy too.
It's good to be back here.
