So anyway, I just wanted to tell you that it's been like..kinda fun..
Those swift glances at each other to see how the other is appreciating the professor's wisecracks. Coming up with a PGW-style scale for the degree of amusement: one-eighth of an inch of smile, one-fourth, and so on.

And now so long, goodbye! I've gotta fill my head with more important things like ferroelectric perovskites right now. Hope to see that smile en route sometimes.'s already en coeur.
