Today is my first day back at school. In honor of the auspicious day I've posted a sketch that was given to me following one lengthy faculty meeting last year. I was so pleased with the gift that I discretely pinned it to the bulletin board in my classroom the next day. As one student after another took note of it a collective pall settled over the usually boisterous room. 

The students found the imaginary portrait creepy and soon asked me to take it down. 

I was a bit surprised at their reaction; it had only inspired a mild jealousy in me for, try as I might, I'd never been able to sketch anything nearly that nice while trying to keep track of a meeting.
