    My husband used to be the school nurse and day care director at a school for teen parents. Mindy has a lot of soul sisters there. Sigh.

  2. flutter says:

    oof. My heart.

  3. cathy says:

    If we all pray really hard Mindy might get evicted thereby following your advice regardless.

  4. Pam says:

    Summed up beautifully in the last paragraph. Loved it!

  5. chelle says:

    hehehe I love how “attached” you get to all your battered students. My husband always has a soft spot for the down trodden too 🙂

  6. Becky Cazares says:

    Well, at least you tried. And cared. Sigh…

    And now I realize my October was so prosaic! The rest is sobering. Courage! And happy new year.

    Oh my! What will you do for blog fodder?

    And that one where she’s talking to the diplomat’s son is the one I quote to my daughter ALL THE TIME. Since we found out some news, and that she’ll be graduating overseas, she’s been talking about how she’s going to go back to the States and go to college and tell everyone all the places she’s lived. I tell her she won’t because she will find people like Mindy:).

  8. Balou says:

    Oh Mindy, Mindy, Mindy
    We hope you see the light
    Change the locks and pack his things
    Show daughter a women’s power and might

    (Oh noetry, bad poetry.)

    Good luck with the new semester.

  9. jess says:

    Good one, Marscapone.I wish you luck with the new crop.

    Can’t. Breath. Laughing too hard.

  11. Bethany/Her Grace says:

    Mindy, your life is so tragic but yet the blog fodder you create makes me laugh. Hard.

    May you rid your life of this loser and all the losers who follow him. For your kid’s sake … please.

    Sartre, Mendelssohn and Mindy…

    The mind, it boggles.

  13. citizen of the world says:

    I’m going to miss young Mindy. Maybe you’ll get another magical character this semester.

  14. monica says:

    Thank God there are teachers like you communicating on the required level!!
    I will definitely be visiting your blog again! Can’t wait to see how things’ll go :o)

  15. lime says:

    in this case i think a bong hit may be about all that keeps the compassionate side of you sane when contemplating mindy’s future. so very sad.

    and may i say i think i need to add “flagglequaken” to my personal lexicon. i think it may have great merit as a polite expletive that is far more interesting than “friggin” and it’s kin.

  16. furiousBall says:

    oh boy. i need to read something to get ready for this kind of stuff. you are good people lady.

  17. Catherinette says:

    Perhaps Mindy will meet a kinder, gentler soul…while she’s visiting her current loser boyfriend in the slammer.

    For the love!

  18. Chantal says:

    (inhale) Oh Mindy! (exhale)

  19. velvet says:

    Ah, Mindy. He’s a bum.

    Good luck with the next crop. 🙂

  20. Logophile says:

    there’s to Mindy.
    May she honor herself and her daughter enough to kick the fucktard out.

  21. Jeni says:

    Just what, might I ask, is this misguided soul studying anyway? Obviously, if she has to take any math classes of any kind, she’s gonna have a rough road there what with the 30 or 60 days, but at least it’s not two months. Hmmm.
    Seriously, I wish her well -and yes, that she would move and leave no forwarding address as surely there are others who could at least live up to current boyfriend’s success rates but maybe have enough sense to pass over the rent money before getting tossed into the lockup. Does make one wonder doesn’t it?

  22. Jill says:

    You are a saint. In your honor, I will officially stop thinking mean thoughts about my coworkers for the rest of the week. Turns out, I have it pretty easy.

  23. Maddy says:

    I don’t think I could manage all that emotional investment just to start all over again each semester. Thank goodness it’s vocational.
    Best wishes to you and yours from me and mine for 2009

  24. franki says:

    jocelyn, jocelyn, jocelyn…everyone knows you RIDE a black hore. you don’t SLEEP with ’em.

    think mindy wrote those?

  25. movin' down the road says:

    I am totally laughing at the conversation. I could SO not be a teacher or professor. I just couldn’t. I would go insane and probably wring someone’s neck.

  26. Glamourpuss says:

    Yes, it’s hard work breaking in a new class. Maybe Mindy feels the same way about loser butthead boyfriends…


  27. pistols at dawn says:

    I’m hoping I just find the tits.
