I love lard

Random story I thought I’d share today:

When I was teaching at St. James with Canelli back in the day, one of my physics students asked me once if I believed in God.  I completely misheard the question as “Do you believe in lard?”  It was a very weird, awkward moment for me.  The thought “How does she know that, during my trip to Baltimore this past weekend, I had a pie made out of lard for the first time?” lodged my brain open for a good five seconds before I was able to answer, in the most sincere and reverential tone, “I…I love lard.”
