Office Hours

"Good morning Dr. Higgenbotham, I was hoping you could help me re-organize my paper like you said in your comments."

"Yes, of course Tariq.  Have a seat and let's take a look."

"O.k.  We've got some typos and small grammar mistakes that you know how to fix, but the main problem is you don't state your thesis until the very end.  Would you get on a bus if you didn't know where it was going?"


"Same with your readers.  They won't follow your argument very far if you don't tell them where you're going in the beginning.  Let's just move this last sentence up to the first paragraph and see how things flow from there."

"I look forward to reading your revised draft next week."

 "So I added the new data to this figure like you said.  Do you think that will make it easier for the audience to understand my conclusions?"

"Yes Li Shang, I think that will work well."

"I'm so nervous about this presentation.  I want everything to be perfect."

"The CAAA international convention doesn't accept just anybody.  The fact that you got a paper accepted there is a real feather in your cap.  You'll do fine."

"That young man is going places!  He's the best graduate student I've seen in twenty years."

"Knock, knock.  Remember me, Dr. Higgenbotham?"

"Ah yes, Olu.  What can I do for you?"

"Well, I'm planning to apply to graduate school and I was hoping you would write a letter of recommendation for me."

"My pleasure Olu.  Just send me your statement of purpose and let me know when the deadlines are."

"You wanted to see me, Professor?"

"Yes Steven.  Have a seat."

"I watched you in the play offs last week so I know you didn't have much time to work on that last paper."

"So I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you didn't realize that copying and pasting from Wikipedia is plagiarism."

Steven finds he can't meet Professor Higgenbotham's eyes.  "I didn't mean to do anything wrong, sir."

"Well don't every do anything that stupid again.  Do you realize you could be benched and lose your scholarship for that kind of academic dishonesty?"

"I'm sorry, sir.  Thank you for giving me another chance."

"Time to go home!"

 "Excuse me, Profesor, do you have a minute?"

"Actually I need to get home, Tommy."

"But I will walk with you to the parking lot.  What's on your mind?"

All of the fashions featured in this photo story are from One Direction dolls.  Although these ensembles fit a variety of male fashion dolls, our favorite Power Team action figures are too broad shouldered to wear the tops.  They can, however, wear the pants.

  1. Hello from Spain, great teacher. Point well taken. Nice pics. Keep in touch

  2. I love it! The Professor seems to be a great guy. I need to get more clothes for my guys.

  3. I am loving the college stories. Professor is such a handsome man. All great fashions. Thanks for showing them.

  4. Hi ladies,

    Glad you enjoyed the story. Seems that even when I'm on break I still think about school.

  5. LOL, I was so caught up in the story I didn't realize you were showing off the fashions until the end. Great post!

  6. Hi Muff,

    Good to hear that the story took precedence over the fashion show. It was a lot of fun to shoot.

  7. I like your story :-)
    One D fashion fits also Fashionistas. I got the HF grandma (caucasian) from an European seller, I saw the grandpa on DollPage from an US seller but plus shipping he's too expensive

    1. Hi Sergio,

      Congratulations on finding the HF grandma! If you keep looking I'm sure the grandpa will turn up at an affordable price too.

  8. Thanks for sharing the 1 Direction fashions. I enjoyed the story about the professor and his students, too.

  9. Glad you enjoyed the story. I am scheming how to get more of those fashions without having to pay full price for the dolls.
