Tomorrow we have no classes but we do have the second part of conferences from 7:30 to 10:30 in the morning. Then the rest of the day is free so I'll come back home and take the girl out to lunch or to the park or any other place she wants to go. It will be a good day. I may also take a large nap.
The Executioner by Beau Golwitzer
This is an utterly ridiculous short story but for some strange reason it was a very enjoyable read. It is about possibly the dumbest people in history who are employed as executioners but they don't have an axe so they don't know what to do with the condemned man. To be honest, I just don't know how to explain what this story is about. It is pretty short and took me about three minutes to read.
Story: 9 of 10
Why a nine? I can't even begin to say why. I just know that I liked it because it was just really different. Funny? Absolutely. Confusing? Kind of. Featuring the dumbest characters ever? Oh yes.
Teachability: 6 of 10
Maybe it'd work? Possibly? I honestly don't know how I'd approach this story except I could see myself offering it as part of a list of stories students could read and write about. I don't think I'd ever mandate reading this story, but as a student selection, it could have a place. I think some students, probably goofy and intelligent students, would really enjoy the piece. And did I mention REALLY STUPID CHARACTERS??
