1. Double treat. I decided I'd stop at Dari Mart for a coffee and cinnamon twist, but it takes about twelve to fifteen minutes to get there, so to sustain me, I bought a coffee at 7-11. Perfect. I finished the last tiny sip of 7-11 coffee in the Dari Mart parking lot and went in and bought my treats. Wow...this might be a regular thing, 7-11, then Dari Mart.
2. I made a guest appearance in the American Working Class Lit. section today and read my paper, "On Needing Richard Hugo". It worked. Students asked good questions and a couple stayed after to talk with me some more about the essay.
3. Slowly, paper by paper I'm getting caught up: it means I'm feeling better. Finally.
