going the wrong way.

♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠ ♠

Authors's note: Today something reminded me of a snafu that happened ages ago. What's the old saying, "Once you know all the correct answers, they change the questions.

In this case, after field school in Egypt, returned to campus. While away, they changed the one-way streets on campus. Oops, discovered that the car was headed in the wrong direction. Luckily, avoided a crash.

    One way streets can be confusing under normal circumstances! Can't imagine a sudden chance
