9/1: microwave and more Martial

Chris used the microwave to soften some butter so we wouldn't have to wait for an hour or two before making cookies.

And it was fun to spend time with a student's choice of Martial poem this morning, reminding me of how much I like teaching Martial in the upper-level classes.  So often his poems are used in beginning Latin textbooks since they're short and humorous, but the students like them so much better later in their time with Latin.
