bubbe-sitting 101

28 07 2008



some of you have already received the syllabus for this course and i thought that it would be good to get an early start on your vocabulary building before we continue.  from time to time we will be looking at special adaptive tools, how to manage parentals without them knowing it, and the proper use of humor in the work place – all within an ethnographic research setting.  i’d like you all to use the following new vocabulary word in a sentence…and be aware that we will be having pop quizzes throughout the semester.  This week’s word:

klep·to·ge·nar·i·an  ( klep-tu-juhnair-ee-uhn)

someone between 80 and 90 years old with an irrational urge

to steal in the absence of an economic motive

Signing up for the course! Knew my ethnographic training would come in handy someday.

Loved these snapshots of some of the poignant, funny moments you’re sharing in this part of the journey with your mom and dad.

Looking forward to the semester…really glad you’re writing again.
