What, a day?

I get up this morning, and after I drop the kids off, I check the mail - something I manage to do at best twice a week anymore. In the bundle of envelopes and mass mailings (seriously, who needs plastic wrapped coupon mailings five times a week?), I found a nice letter addressed to me from a law boutique in Beaumont. It's one I mailed my resume out to a short time back, and I figure this is their rejection letter. I open it, and get a nice compliment - your resume is very impressive, both from a quality and content standpoint. They then tell me that they can't offer me employ this summer (see, I was right for once!) but told me they would keep my resume on file and "hope to be in touch with [me] again soon." Signed by one of the partners - always nice. I must say, all in all, this was one of the nicest rejections I've ever received. Much better than the time I invited a girl to prom when I was in 10th grade and she laughed at me.

Then, I start reading pro res and watching Monk, and I fall asleep. Which is a real shame, because I really like Monk - excellent show with good writing.

I pull the weeds on the patio; there's too many. Stupid weeds.

Now I'm doing laundry, and I have to put in the fabric softener, because I'm married, and apparently you have to use fabric softener if you're a married male - and not just drier sheets, either.

Now I have to get ready for class. Education law. This class rocks! I'm really getting excited about my paper. I have most of the research done. I just have to put it together and work on the proposed curriculum, with legal analysis. It's going to be a fun one.

Yeah, I once heard that fabric softener is what wives use to mark their husbands. Much more pleasant than urinating on them... dontchathink?
Also, didn't you go to the senior prom every year you were in high school and then also my senior year?(he did not go with me by the way)
