Don't let students flirt with you, even if you do nothing to encourage it.

There's intriguing. How do you get to learn that? And vulnerable to what?
That said, I don't expect, or really want, you to explain: it's just that it's a simple declarative statement that has a koan*-like ability to foment questions the longer you let it lie in your mind. And I, as a Romantic, prefer provocative questions to 'definitive' answers.

My eldest is selling mail-order clothes around our village to raise money for a school outing. I am now in possession of SO much more information than I needed about the underwear choices of our exclusively pension-age neighbours. :o :|

If I was being picky and I am. It's not in Glasgow. It's in Renfrew and has a Renfrewshire post code. They have included Glasgow in their address for some reason.

Its about a 3 minute drive from me.

Yay! Tagtucker! :lol:
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.
