I've always wanted to apologize to Dr. Leonardi for my lameness in class, for my ungenerous response to the respect she showed me. I went so far as to compose an email to her years later, and discovered that she'd left academia and was living somewhere in northern California. If my student were to track me down in the future and apologize for her utterly insignificant distracted moment in class, I'd assure that I knew just how significant it felt to her.
