With each word the buzzing in my head got worse. I put my hands over my ears. “Please stop! Please stop.” I begged.
“What you have,” the doctor said, “is a specific type of tinnitus called tinnitus bovinus excrementes educatum. It is caused by repetitive exposure to education buzzwords. It does not seem to be that common educators. For some reason, there is a high tolerance for buzzwords in education.”
“Is there a cure?”
“Fortunately the cure is simple. When you hear a buzzword, be skeptical. And, most importantly don’t repeat it. It is the repetition that causes the most damage.”
