I have been shopping for new eyeglasses all week. I have been everywhere. I finally stopped at a high end shop this evening and ordered myself some glasses - that cost enough to feed a family of five for a month. Oh well. I like the way they look and they are high quality and I have to wear the things every single day of my life....
And in this way I can rationalize why I will love living in the poor house when I retire. Right?
So on this Saturday, I will start my second year of biblical school with a half day retreat. I am looking forward to this. And I am writing this on Friday night because I discovered it is one of my favorite people's AA birthday tomorrow, so I must be at the 6:30 meeting. And be ready to leave from there and get to the retreat. So I will not have time to post in the morning.
(I attended a very fine Jesuit university, and I can almost visualize all the red marks over what I have written thus far- starting sentences with "so" and "and" and writing fragments instead of sentences, oh well, it is late in the evening.)
If I ever wonder again why it is that I post in the morning instead of the evening, let this post be a reminder of the way my brain degrades throughout the day. Let's stay sober today everyone, OK?
