Today, I got a little unexpected wisdom.
I take a taekwondo class at OU, more for the physical outlet than anything else. On Monday, I sort of completely skipped class, and today my professor wanted to know why.
Teacher *in nearly impenetrable Korean accent*: We missed you in class on Monday, Megan. Where were you?
Me: Sorry sir. I got caught up in a conversation, and it went right through class.
Teacher: I see. Was it ... a very important conversation?
Me: ... well no, not really, but it was a very good conversation.
Teacher: Ah. Sometimes, that is all that matters.
And that was the end of it. It's always nice when people understand your reasons; it's even nicer when they understand them even better than you do.
