I had hoped to get around to writing something thrilling today, but this will not be possible because....
a) my laptop is fritzing out
b) grades are due tomorrow and I haven't finished scoring the final exams yet
c) my next semester also starts tomorrow and I haven't even thought about preparing the syllabus yet
d) tonight I get to go with a group of neighborhood friends to an Impressionist exhibit at the museum (yeah!) but my friends also asked me to serve as a guide (blech!) which means I have to put on airs and act like an expert when what I really want to do is very very quietly LOOK AT THE ART.
e) I have spent the last hour trying to convince Gabie that even if he dresses up like a flower and holds a cup of sugar water in his hand and learns how to speak Hummingbird, he will not be able to convince a hummingbird to come live in our house and be his friend.
f) all of the above
If you picked "F" you are either a genius or I am getting too predictable.
Since I'm so busy, can I recommend another good read for today? This post by Michelle at Scribbit made me smile. It's about old-fashioned values and a search for ice skates. I liked it enough to award it a perfect post award for April.
