I'm an "alternate."
I don't understand. Am I really so average?
Nobody wants me enough. NU doesn't want me enough. CLS doesn't want me enough. What the hell? I have an amazing aptitude for language learning. I've taken 12 language courses at the college level in 4 different languages, one of them an Indian Language. A Dravidian - Tamil. And Punjabi is Indo-European....so they're not actually related at all, but who else knows that?
I really thought that I was a shoo-in for that one. And yes, that is the appropriate spelling for that phrase. I googled it.
I'm going to crawl back under my covers now.
