The machines are conspiring to kill me. The printer/copier combo and the water filter both stopped working yesterday. That means that I couldn’t make copies for my new lesson yesterday, or get hot water for my coffee. Now I have to hike up to the third floor to use the students’ lukewarm hot water dispenser, and I have to copy worksheets by hand. Just kidding about that last one, I just have to go to another building. However, since I can’t print anything from my computer, I don’t really have anything I can copy, now do I? At least I have my tepid, not-fully-dissolved instant coffee to sip as I puzzle this out.
