Stuffed Dog

Some girl showed up for class on Thursday night with a stuffed dog. No joke. A big floppy, stuffed dog, and her boyfriend, who is not only not in our class, but not even an English major. I am not sure if she couldn't separate herself from him for the three hours, or what the deal was. But the dog? I mean, come on. We're in a class for adult people here. Why are you carrying a stuffed dog?

She sat with it in her lap "cuddling" it through the whole class as if she were in the privacy of her own home. Isn't college supposed to be the place where you learn to become an adult?

I'm not sure why, but it made me mad.
