What made me laugh was the plaintive cry of "...but I already ate one of your Rice Krispy treats...."  I can just see the mournful look on the student's face, having, like Proserpina or whoever it was, eaten one tiny pomegranate seed, and now is doomed.

Since I read through the exchange, can I get a Rice Krispy treat?

Oh, man. I want one too. Anakin, I will gladly let you interview me Tuesday for an RKT today.

RKT's for all my favorite beleagured colleagues completing another semester at beating back incivility and dis-civilization, in all its forms. RKTs all around!

Mom! He's looking at me funny. And he touched me, too.

I don't want my name used either, but  you can refer to me as P42 as long as you keep it totally anonymous.

It's giving me a toothache.  A real pain in the molars.
