The Last Lesson

by Daudet, Alphonse

Happy 49th Podcast!

The 49th is, of course, a notable one: it’s our last perfect square until 64, and even then, both digits won’t also be perfect squares. And, of course, it’s the last podcast of our extended youth together; next time I post, we shall be plainly geriatric. Next time you hear me, of course, my voice shall be shaking as my larynx will start to sag or do what larynxes do to show they’ve turned 50. And then you’ll return to this happy 49th podcast, again and again, wistfully remembering when we were young.
