It's all about me

I'm back from a half-year blogging hiatus. I have enjoyed the break and feel that all jobs should come with six-month vacations. I'm a little nervous, to be honest. I've fallen out of rhythm. I feel like I don't what's going on out there in the blogodrome. I wonder if anyone will come back after my desertion.

An unrelated story:
For a year in Sierra Leone I taught five boys all subjects that 7th and 8th graders are supposed to learn. One day I got so frustrated with the egocentrism that permeated their conversations, that I banned the use of all first-person pronouns and kept score on the board for any violations of the rule. One kid kept using them on purpose and it made me angry.
