Why Professor Fun likes me so much

Her dog's name is "Ayelet." No joke. A student in class asked her what her views were on medical experiments performed on animals (we were discussing the bleak history of medical experiments on people, which for centuries were carried out on slaves, prisoners, and impoverished African Americans), and she said, "On the one hand, I believe that medical advances save human lives. On the other... My dog Ayelet is like the daughter I never had. She's the only other female in the house; she's more spoiled than my sons are."

Countertransference. It's powerful.
