Fun in Syriac

I've decided to pursue a Ph. D. sometime in the next couple of years, so I'm auditing a couple of language classes. I'm trying to do a little leveling in German, and exploring a probable field of study in classical Syriac. (German is grunt-work, Syriac is groovy, both are guttural.) The following words were exchanged this morning while we took turns translating sentences from our Syriac primer:

Hesitant student: "I know what I want it to say..."

Dr. Childers: "I've met people in churches like you."

(I giggled and scribbled it in the margins of my notebook.)

Classic Childers wit. Boy do I miss that. I miss being the butt of his jokes and already laughing out loud before realizing he was making fun of me. Classic I say. Classic. Miss ya Kelli.

I agree with kasey--that is classic and it makes me miss you and Abilene. Where are you thinking of applying (or have you gotten that far)? We need to chat.
