Have you been watching this?
GMA was having a special edition this morning. They kept showing these reunions, and I was almost crying on the treadmill.
Yay for Chile!
Last month I got summoned for jury duty. While waiting for the day to arrive, I had to shuffle my classes a little bit. After doing that, I had to call a hotline last night and find out if I had to report for duty or not.
I didn't have to go.
I found myself kind of disappointed by that. I think I was hoping for this:
I am working on rewriting one of the classes that I teach. Today I was searching for some articles to use in class, and flipping through a textbook I came across an article called "I Want a Wife" by Judy Someone or other.
The article gives a lot of examples of how a wife takes care of the husband, children, and household. The author comments several times that she wants a wife, because she needs to be taken care of.
When I was an undergrad, I worked one summer with a program that trained AP Biology teachers and got them certified. Being a peon, my job was to make sure all the little components were in place to make the program run smoothly. So I had to get the snacks together, make photocopies, and set up the labs that the teachers would do.
One day, I came in and the women who taught the program were running around a little crazy. I asked what was up, and they said they had forgotten to do something that they needed. I calmly said that I had done it.
The main teacher looked at me and said, "Will you marry me?"
It became one of the big jokes because she really wanted a wife.
After reading this article and remembering that experienced, I realized, I want a wife. It would be so nice to have someone take care of me.
Driving to and from work the past couple of days, I have seen a whole row of bikes with a sign that says For Sale by Owner. I keep thinking about calling and getting one.
And then I remember the day after I first rode a bike in Italy.
Maybe it's like if you give a mouse a cookie. If you buy a bike, you have to buy padded bike shorts.
