The taxi driver who can't say goodbye
It's a casualty of my profession, having to say goodbye to people who go away. This past week, 6 students successfully defended their MS theses, and so this means that most of them will soon be saying goodbye.
There is a famous radio sketch from 11 January 1948 by Jack Benny that involves a taxi driver who can't bear to say goodbye. A summary follows:
If you want to hear the sketch, listen to this and skip to 11:35 into the program.
As you can guess, the taxi driver shows up throughout the show. He can't bear to say goodbye and neither can I.
Kind of a tangent to what you said, but in the same vein, this time of year always has me get really nostalgic for some reason. And I'm not even going anywhere. I'll be right back next year. I'm not even leaving town for the summer. I'm not even leaving my room. And I haven't even had anything really that amazing happen this year. But still, every time the end of year rolls around I get all weird and nostalgic. Crazy, eh?
