Poor Tim, like a humanoid fresh from the womb, has got his mornings, days, and nights all mixed up. This due to finals- and PhD-application-imposed sleep deprivation.
Today, after a hasty last read-through, we rushed his paper to the English Department Office with minutes to go before closing time. On the return trip, Tim noticed a young girl, age 10 maybe, walking outside. For reasons unbeknownst to anyone, he smiled and waved.
The poor girl looked as if she didn't know how to respond and gave a shy, indeterminate wave in response. You can betcha Tim sure felt like a creeper.
