(or)

There were twenty-four sophomores and juniors, and of the first ten papers, only two of them seemed to understand that The Merry Wives of Windsor was supposed to be funny. One of those was a Sociology major. He was a failure as a teacher. He finished the sandwich, blew crumbs off his desk so he wouldn’t leave mayonnaise fingerprints on the essays, and tore open the pretzels before he sharpened his red pencil one more time.

Books in progress: Martin Cruz Smith, Stallion Gate
There's always one more quirk in the character:

Matthew eats sourdough pretzels with mustard. He is such a bloody stereotype. I'm sending him back.

Oh, god, now I have a craving. Sick, Bear. Sick.

(not as sick as french fries and mayo, though; that's just gross.)

Things I'm glad I didn't go to my grave without: leahbobet: "How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Slushbomb"
