Irrational, but there it is.

...A whole sock you say? Hmmm
Trust me, You'll find the time to knit a pair of socks. I believe in you.

I already sent in my email.... And freshman year of college there is nothing so important that you need to pay so much attention during class. Freshman classes are like high school, except most of them don't take attendance and you don't have to go every day.

Besides, if you don't finish, you'll be killed, have a pair of socks to show for it, and the pride of knowing you at least participated.

Now my only concern is that I don't know what my mailing address will be yet!
...
Do you think I should show my face in the knitting shop where I once volunteered to do classes and never did just to get some more sock yarn? It was way back in December. Maybe they don't remember me...

Careful: I teach Freshman Composition. It's NOT a blow-off course

But Aidan, unless you're working a lot and taking a full load, you should have ample time to compete!

Oh no!!! Maybe you could wear a fake beard or something, and use a funny accent...

This looks like it could totally could be fun..... but I'm not sure I'm ready for the challenge. I love to knit, but with lane running around.. it's getting really hard. Plus I have the DOG to keep out of my knitting.

I've got time to think about this one..

People people people. The absolute worst thing that can happen? You get a pair of free, handknitted socks in the mail before you cast on to kill your target. Whoops! Now you're dead, better send that pattern and the yarn you were GOING to use to your killer, and then sit back and watch the rest of the fun!

Aidan, you can always sign up with your parent's address and either ask them to forward your mail or officially change your mailing address with the post office. It's not very hard, and they forward all your mail for six months, by which time you'll have changed your mailing address back to your permanent address. It sounds confusing but it really isn't.

Don't let Angelia fool you, I took Freshman Comp and while I would never label ANY class as a blow-off class, it's not a kill-yourself-working class, either. Unless Angelia is teaching YOUR freshman Comp class, in which case you should work your tuchus off.

Perhaps I'm not the best role model, though, since I've always been an above-average writer and was able to coast through writing classes without incident.

I look forward to keeling you!!!!!! knitted socks of DOOM! bWAHAHAHAHAHA!
