Back in the Saddle

By the end of the day today, it was very clear to everyone that the calendar was serious when it said we had to go back to school.

Luckily, one of my former students gave me a box of Godiva to thank me for writing her letter of recommendation, which was awesome.

Also, I got to discuss one of my most favorite books in the world, The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. As I may have mentioned before, Mr. O'Brien went to Macalester and I also went to Macalester. We are connected on a collegiate level, which makes me a genius by... collegiate connection?

Anyway, one of the kids told me that M&Ms (carried by a character named Rat Kiley who is a medic) were actually made for use in war. Is this true? It's something I'll have to find out about soon. It's good to have attainable goals like visiting Wikipedia to read about M&Ms candy.

We're back in gear. Doing our best and forgetting the rest.
