I have finally returned to the Land of Lincoln and Portillo’s after my second 2200-mile trip to Florida for a death in the family in the last two months. I am exhausted. Either I need a psychiatrist to get me over the old fear of flying or an anesthesiologist to put me under for the duration of the flight.

I received several history and economics textbooks from my grandparents’ estate. Some people want money, or land, or jewelry… not me. Give me history texts that predate the Roaring 20s and economics texts that predate Keynes. There’s also a calculus book thrown in, so I figure I’ll reteach myself calculus. Without a $100 calculator.

It was good to visit Paxon–especially since I knew I could leave whenever I felt like it! Ahhhh.

Thankfully they hired someone to replace me, so it was safe to go in and see The Boss (no, not Dr. Williams, he’s just “The Man.” Coburn is “The Boss” because she was most likely to murder me if I screwed up). I saw most of the folks I wanted to see, though I ran out of time to visit some. Those who were glad to see me said so, which felt good, and those who weren’t kept their mouths shut! All around, an uplifting end to an otherwise solemn trip to Florida.

Apologies for grammatical and spelling errors; I’ll fix them tomorrow. Good night.

well i hope you felt the love from me even though i didn’t come up to you and bother you like FRO-BOY. (in psych.) bothering aside, it was good to see an intellegent teacher walk the halls of paxon. maybe some of your greatness will come back to the school or something. lol
