The resident faculty left an interesting photo outside the mail room this morning. The staff recycle, so we hope this is their weekly clue…. (More)

“I already sort our recycling,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor said, looking at the photo left by the resident faculty when they made their way from the wine cellar library, where they spent the weekend drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum (“More wine, more truth”), to the hot tub faculty lounge for their weekly game where the underwear goes flying planning conference.

“We all do,” Chef said as she brought out the decoder ring.

“Is that your tree in the middle of the recycle symbol?” the Professor of Astrology Janitor asked. “Maybe they’re asking you to recycle.”

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped at his Blewberry. “Nutshells break down into the soil, and Mrs. Squirrel made our furniture and curtains for Árbol Squirrel from scraps of fabric and such that she found.”

“Maybe the resident faculty will talk about the importance of recycling this week,” Chef said. “But that kind of story usually goes in Our Earth.”

The Squirrel shook his head and tapped again. “That isn’t what they discussed in the hot tub faculty lounge squirrel bath.”

“Hmmm,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor hummed. “Maybe they’ll recycle a previous Morning Feature series?”

“Getting closer,” the Squirrel texted.

Chef tapped her forehead with the heel of her hand. “Duh. They plan to recycle last week’s topic, right?”

The Squirrel nodded. “More of More of the Same … me bouncing around the news with Mixed Nuts while the resident faculty grade midterms or something.”

“There are no exams at BPI Campus,” the Professor of Astrology Janitor said. “That’s one reason students come here.”

“Thus the ‘or something,’” the Squirrel texted.

“In other words,” Chef said, “they’re taking another week off. They better not try to sneak off to Tijuana again.”

We hope not….
