“Remember”, admonished Phelan, the oldest, “we have to deal with all kinds of assumptions about change and the transcendentals among these students”.

“There’s quite a different crowd each semester”, replied Groner, the youngest, “but things always follow exactly the same consistent pattern”.

As the sound of the latest Macklemore song got gradually louder, Friel sighed, “Oh well here come our fresh faced enchanting young charges”. jennifer-pendergast4

The characters in my story were all my philosophy professors. The transcendentals are beauty, truth and goodness.
