Sam is My Man

In early November I talked about “Hot Rocks on the Ocean Floor” to my friend Tracy’s third grade class, fifth time I think.  It is always tremendous fun.  An age where they are just beginning to understand and understanding is still okay.

A pleasure is receiving the thank you letters.  Each charming in its own way.   But this one stood out:

Dear Dr. McDuff, I hope you liked Meridian Park [School] cause we liked you.  That show was interesting, your awsome!  You look like a pro thats what I want to be a pro I want to be a star just like a you.  I want to be just like you when I’m a grown up I want to be just like you; Smart intilliegent and the smartest oceanographist in the world.

Thanks Sam!

    Me too! I want to be like you when I grow up. I’m hoping there’s still time.

    I’ve always thought there was some sort of je ne sais quoi about you, Russ. And now I finally learn what it is: you look like a pro! Thank you Sam, for figuring it out! (And after all, looks are the most important thing, non?)

    This boy’s words are so true. You are the best oceanographist in the world!
