Sacrificing the Bawdy

Just took a break to the coffee room and realized I just wanted to be playing this old video game tonight instead of going to the gym- sacrificing the body for the mind. In college lit classes my friend Ann and I (now an English literature professor!) had this inside joke that every time someone said “body” they meant “bawdy”- and oh, a laughing riotous time was had by all. And believe you me, “the body” comes up quite a lot in 90s feminist lit theory classes. Oh yes, it does. Sacrificing the bawdy for the mind. Oh yes.
