Self educationKnock-Knock Boots now firmly on our feet, this month we will be kicking down our writers’ doors, walking in unannounced, and taking a shelf-vandalizing survey of all their reading material. “Have a five-page report on all of these books written by next Tuesday, or else,” we’ll say, slapping our palm with a nightstick.
We Don’t Get Scrooged Again
Synonyms for our SeasonWe’re going to get right to the point: Deep in December, the entire term-paper market (in alphabetical order): aborts, backslides, breaks down, buys the farm, comes a cropper, comes to naught, crashes, decamps, deteriorates, dies, disappears, eclipses, expires, fizzles, flatlines, flops, flounders, gets lost, goes astray, goes on the lam, goes west, hits the road, hits the skids, lays an egg, makes like Jimmy Hoffa, miscarries, pratfalls, pulls a fade, shows its heels, skips town, sleeps with the fishes, snoozes, splits, stumbles, runs aground, takes a fall, takes a powder, and takes to the sky. And then it vanishes. And it won’t come back no more no more until you’ve gotten over your New Year’s Eve excess cheer — or at least until your instructors have gotten over theirs. (Back when the Super Bowl was played in January, it didn’t come back until after that.) We ask you: what are our writers to do?
