Ask the Editor

Dear Editor,
November, as you may know, is corn harvesting month in southwestern Ontario. In past years, I have always gone home to help my dad do some combining.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to make it home to help, and as a result, my dad has had to do all the work himself. How can I say I’m sorry when I see him over the Christmas break?

Thanks for your help and wisdom,
Paul Yeoman
Special Student

Dear Paul,
Having been conceived, born and raised in a tractor, I know harvesting corn is a difficult process. As I see it, you have several options.
a.) Tell your dad the past few months of kicking your feet up as University Students’ Council president has made you too weak to be an effective farmer.

b.) Don’t go home for Christmas — the next time you see him, he’ll be so angry you were never home for the holidays that he’ll have forgotten all about combining.

c.) Make something up. As a student politician, this option is probably the easiest.
