Having accepted StyleyGeek's dare, I cannot help but write: doomed. DOOMED! DOOOOMED*!
a short quiz:
Who or what is DOOOOMED?
a) my plagiarizing student, for claiming never to have learned to use quotation marks
b) my boyfriend's university housing office, for offering us apartments with giant hallways leading nowhere fast
c) my students' essays, DOOOOMED to languish past their original date-to-be-returned
d) all of the above
*I can't help but want to pronounce this word doo-med.
