Reference Question of the Day

Student [pointing to a passage in which a grandmother explains to her granddaughter that her breasts are still round and perky because she soaks them in ice water every night]: Ms. K-M, is this true?


  1. My thought process:
    1st - "Oh dear god"
    2nd - I wonder if it was a male or female asking (I can't imagine male, but nothing would actually surprise me)
    3rd - I wonder what her [your] response was...

    Updated: 4th - I am so sick of that blog error

  2. It was a female student who asked. The male student sitting beside her was appropriately mortified.

    I told her that I was not familiar with any research regarding the effectiveness of such a plan.
