A strange twist of fate

I never stopped to consider one of life's little ironies. Just a few years ago, I was in last place for the "world's greatest writer" competition... out of everybody in the whole world. Illiterate little children in the unknown Amazon jungles could write better academic papers than I could.

Now I am teaching rhetoric to undergraduate students at a world-class institution. I'm not doing such a bad job at it according to my teaching evaluations, either.

It's funny how you'll never know where life will take you if you let it.
