Coffee and Dissertations

September 29th is National Coffee Day. So, how about a little dissertation coffee talk?

Hello, and welcome to Cawfee Tawk. My guest today is the smahtest girl in the whole world… My cousin’s step-brother’s mother-in-law’s grand niece, Louise!

Louise is so smaht. She’s goin’ to be a docta. But, not one of those white-coat wearin’, turn your head ‘n’ cawfin doctas. She’s goin’ to be a real book learnin’, egghead docta…

Except her head is just beautiful! Look at it. It’s like budda. She reminds me of one of those beautiful angels in the goya paintings at the museum…

I’m startin’ to get emotional here. Oh, no. Yep. I’m a little verklempt!

I’ll be OK. Tawk amongst yourselves.

Wheeeww! OK. I’m back. Let’s tawk to Louise.

So, Louise, your motha said that you’re writing some kinda book for school. Is that right?

– Yes, it’s my dissertation. And, I’m studying…wahnk-wah, da-wahnkity, wonk, waah.

Ya see? I told you she’s the smahtest girl in the whole world! So, Louise, how’s your dissertation comin’ alawng?

– Not very well. My professor said that my work isn’t strong enough yet and it needs to be a lot better if I’m ever going to graduate.

What? How could he say such a thing to you? You’re the smahtest girl in the world. How-could-he-be-so-mean… Oh, here I go, again. I went right past emotional to verklempt!

Tawk amongst yourselves.

I’ll give you a topic…

Can you call it a dissertation journey if your dissertation isn’t going anywhere?




-My professor. She’s a woman.

That jealous b. Tryin’ to keep my little Louise down. You just wait. I’m goin’ to that school right now…

This is been Cawfee Tawk.

I’ve gotta go.

Tawk amongst yourselves!
