Two of my creative writing students from last semester also got creative with a photo of me from this blog. Here, Sam M. puts my face (from this post) into a charming/creepy holiday depiction:
and Mark B. put my face on currency,
and in my own trading card (Mark also decided I was “secretly … president of the United States”),
and in Mount Rushmore (left of me is my teaching colleague Mr. Fonfara).
I appreciate the wisdom that I, a Humble Genius, should be given the spot of Thomas Jefferson, the president so smart that he was an “extraordinary collecti0n of talent, of human knowledge … when [he] dined alone.“
