A) Fawn obsequiously and ask if you can have an autograph.
B) Sit perfectly still and use only soft keystrokes to avoid disturbing her concentration
C) Leave her daily offerings of granola and English toffee from the food bins.
D) Quote your favorite formula from the textbook and explain how it’s now your mantra.
E) Show her how example 17b could have been solved with 34 fewer lines of code.

  2. Or G) Who gives a flying ferret? Treat them like you treat anyone else.

  3. I’d probably choose (C), mostly because it sounds like fun.
