As you know, the start of school is always a hectic chapter in a young man’s life. It’s a period when free time is limited and stress-related diarrhea is copious. My week has been a frenzied rush of lesson planning, windsprints, and hot-headed recriminations leveled at passersby.
The energy level needed to get through my days intact is such that I’ve had difficulty sleeping. Last night I straddled a fire hydrant and spit at stray dogs until collapsing at 5am. I awoke two hours later naked in my garage. My neighbors are the best.
In addition, I’m chaperoning a middle school retreat on Thursday and Friday, spending a night in a cabin with a bunch of 11 & 12 year olds. This is exactly as fun as it sounds.
On the plus side, KFC is about to release their latest abomination against the natural law, the breadless Double Down Chicken Sandwich.
I’ll see you guys out behind the KFC. I’ll be the guy collecting spare change and muttering swear words.
