Today, as I gingerly stepped up the sidewalk to the front doors of the YMCA for my morning workout, I saw a blonde in her late twenties about twenty feet behind me. Her hands were full. I held open the door, she ran a little bit and thanked me, while I smiled the best smile I could muster at 5:48am. I continued walking, when I heard her call from behind: "Wait!" I turned around. She said, "You dropped something," then bent down and picked up the black cloth that had fallen out of my gym bag.
It was my boxer briefs. Oops. At least they were clean.
I was at school until 7:45pm tonight. Left the house at 5:30am, and didn't return for over 14 hours. What a life I leed. Or lack thereof.
Every one of my colleagues seemed like the winds were out of their sails today. People were snippy. People groaned. I guess that's what happens when you wake up and 96 other school districts and schools have two-hour delays, and yours doesn't. And we could have used it, too; the roads were icy this morning, and several cars couldn't make it up the hill of the school's driveway. There were several cars just sliding down the hill as they tried to drive up it with their child. It sucked.
As far as I'm concerned, Dr. Boston has failed her first test as School CEO. When every other county is cancelling or delaying, there's a reason for it. Follow suit. No need to be a renegade.
At least 24 is on tonight. I've been looking forward to it all day.
