It was business as usual today, with the student’s animal behaviour symposium, then grade management, discussing the honours students exam posters, walking the ridge and meetings to arrange.
All amidst young ones who wouldn’t realise what it was like.
I’d really have liked to have been chatting with my kakis, who’d have plenty to share about the Old Man. My What’s App chat group had been buzzing since morning but I had to go offline for the busy day.
Then a young student in the symposium said, “I’d like to begin my extending my condolences to everyone.”
Then it was alright.
