Things I Love About Life Tonight

Your suspicions about how weird I am are about to be confirmed.  I'm just sitting here on my sister's couch (without pants on because pants are optional at her house) thinking about how much I love my life.  Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of voids in my life and lots of disappointing moments but there  are a few things I love.

  1. I love the fact that I'm from the South.  I wanted I eat some healthy vegetables tonight and my first choice on how they should be prepared...FRIED.  If you are wondering, we don't consider fried food unhealthy.  It is simply a way to prepare food just like grilling or pan searing are food preparation methods.  
  2. I love that my students know my addiction to chocolate is real.   I had a student bring me a half opened chocolate bunny.  She told me she gave it to me because she knew how much I loved chocolate.  Did I eat it?  No!   The gesture warmed my heart though.  
  3. Speaking of gifts,  another student brought me a cup with dirt and grass.   It's currently sitting in my classroom window.  I'm not sure if it had any seeds or anything that is living (i.e. You know something that has roots) in it.  I guess time will tell.  
  4. The fact that Pandora has a Cinco de Mayo radio station...enough said.
