But I can't help it!
I just emailed my Literary Criticism prof about how much I enjoyed her class.
Seriously. That was it. I just rambled on for like 15 lines about how I would gladly take a Lit Crit II if it were offered, and how at first I didn't like Dracula but now it's one of my favourite books ever. And then I told her that I valued her opinion completely, so - even though I've already met with my program advisor and he approved the classes I want to take next semester - would she recommend some classes for me to take in the future? And also can we be best friends forever?
I wish there was a way that I could be appropriately demonstrative without sounding like I want a lock of her hair to keep in the treasure box under my bed, but at this point (the point at which I've already sent the email) I could give a shit. I'm lettin' the old Freak Flag fly.
I'm actually not sure she likes me much at all, so hopefully she won't respond to my overtures with a restraining order (because that would really put a damper on my plans to make a Platonic Love Potion and spike her coffee with it).
