All the offices at the university have the names of the teachers who inhabit them posted on the doors. There are several people in each office, due to space restrictions - mine has 6 desks and 8 people. But we're not usually all there at the same time, so it's not a big problem. I haven't even met all 8 people yet.
None of this is my point.
A few days ago, they updated the names on the doors. And there I am, with two little letters and two little dots after my name: M.A. I get a little thrill every time I see it. I wonder how long it'll take to wear off.
