Unbearable, indeed.

So my colleague wants to teach Milan Kundera's novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being next year to Juniors.

Our curriculum is a constant give-and-take, push-and-pull. But we get along well and make compromises and such.

But I cannot stand this book. Lugubrious and Ponderous. And I think the kids will hate it.

I'm going to keep plugging away, but I feel a battle brewing.

To be fair, I'm only on page 30. But that's 8 separate sitdowns with it. I can't go more than a few pages at once.
