I want to let each and every one of you know how welcome and at-ease I felt while I was with you. Everyone I met was exceptionally kind and open to our endless questions, which was so necessary, let me tell you. I regret not being able to meet everyone, but the people I did spend my time with were incredibly knowledgeable and just as incredibly patient. I had a fantastic time with you. I’ll be sure to try Bobo’s Fried Chicken the next time I’m there.
To Dr.Hessler, I want to specifically express how great it was to meet you, and how you’re nothing like all of the terrible stories Professor Woodworth tells us. You don’t look remotely like a balrog. My biggest regret is that we weren’t able to spend more time with you and your students. That’s likely the only thing I would’ve changed. Perhaps next time.
The trip to Oklahoma City was an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. It was a healthy balance of culture-shock and absolute reverence for such a beautiful city.
And I can’t wait to come back.
Thank you again for being such a warm and receptive host.
