Dear Readers, I am now in possession of a job. Part-time. For one semester.
What the hell.
Normally, I find adjuncting abusive, underpaid, and abhorrent. Also, I have little to no desire to be a professor. However, I will be paid a fairly ridiculous sum to literally show up for twelve hours a week, for one semester, and keep a bunch of students from setting themselves on fire in lab. Someone else does all the prep and the 'lab reports' are fill-in-the-blank worksheets.
However, I'm a little miffed in a philosophical sense to suddenly be, even for a semester, that professor's wife who's adjuncting. What. The. Hell.
(I will not allow this to come between me and the pile of money.)
