Tomorrow evening we’re going to my high school, to attend an award ceremony for two of my all-time favorite teachers — people who made learning to write research papers seem like a great adventure, people who were totally accepting at a time when I really needed that in my life, and people whose kids I spent many evenings babysitting. In the 25 years since I graduated, I’ve seen one of the teachers once, for about 5 minutes, and the other not at all. It will be great to see them in person again.
However… right now I’ve got a cold and have been blowing my nose so much it’s raw. And my wife has a fairly noticeable bruise on her temple from an acupuncture needle.
So hopefully the teachers don’t think I’ve turned out to be a coke addict who beats her wife.
