There has been talk, dear Reader. It would appear that Jaspyr was is not only staff-student liaison committee second-year rep, but is also heir apparent to the proprietor of the Daily Wind Instrument, our local newspaper.
I know this because I myself discovered that our visiting speaker on careers in the fashion industry was none other than Penny Whistle, senior reporter on the Daily Windy – as it is affectionately known in the SCR. *
I thought no more of this little fracas until a headline caught my eye the following day. It screamed, vulgarly:
I will say no more of this for now, dear Reader, apart from noting that I am not 56.
*We were just transitioning from powerpoint slide 42 to 43 in the visiting speaker’s talk (‘From Hieroglyphics to (H)employability’) when I noticed that his beard appeared to be drooping a little under the warmth of the spotlight. I passed a helpful note reminding him to speak up, and as I did so I managed to snag said beard on my clipboard. I whisked the clipboard to one side, and Lo! Dr Euphonium was Ms Whistle.
