I told my Intro to Photo students today that I changed my name to Mr. Dupri. So, I said, “please call me Mr. Dupri for the rest of the semester.” One of my students asked if he could call me Professor Dupri. I told him that Professor Dupri sounded too pretentious.

If you can figure out a connection between those two stories let me know.
