Depends on how you look at it

This weekend we hosted a group of college girls at our home as a part of girls retreat for our college ministry.  Friday night around 10:30 we had 7 girls arrive @ our home.  2 juniors & 5 freshman.  They are all students @ M.C., same school that Amanda & I both graduated from.

As we were getting to know them & where they were from we started talking about their experiences @ M.C. (classes, tribes, professors, cafeteria, etc.)  One of the girls was talking about one of her classes & I asked which professor is teaching the class.  She responded w/ HE’S REALLY OLD SO YOU MAY HAVE HAD HIM.

She didn’t say it in all caps.  But I clearly heard it that way.  It’s been 12 years since I was in her shoes as a college freshman.  Seems like yesterday to me.  It seems like an eternity to her.
