dylan the reluctant draggard

TS(O) at Video meliora has blogged a bit about how Bill O'Reilly chose the title of his recent memoir: he recalled a teacher's description of him in the third grade. The teacher, a nun, had called him "a bold, fresh piece of humanity."

I can boast nothing similar. At the end of my freshman year of high school, my English teacher, the late Mr F. J. Molloy, told me my grade for the year (D-plus, despite having turned in two late A papers) and diagnosed me quite aptly, I fear, by saying, "You're a reluctant draggard."
