Thanks, Navin R. Johnson

This is exactly how I feel right now:

This is my third day teaching with kids and it feels like...well, it feels like this:

Navin Johnson: [speaking to Marie in bed while she sleeps] 

I know we've only known each other four weeks and 

three days, 

but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. 

The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed 

like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again 

and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day 

you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, 

and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the 

evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like 

two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling 

over into the next day and that started seeming like four 

days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it 

seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed

like a week and a half. 

I have it written down, but I can show it to 

you tomorrow if you want to see it.
