Lori

After the initial worry of whether we could find enough work for them, most summer students endeared themselves to us and we missed them when they were done. Lori was a belly-dancer. She attended squat-ins and never learned to drive. She was a sociology major who worked the word hegemonic into daily conversations.

  2. Oh, memories... I do really miss some of those students. They were indeed an endearing (mostly) and eclectic bunch.

  4. There is no way I could work hegemonic into even one conversation. Lori sounds wonderful.
