First Day!

August 1, 2011

Today was our first day! Unfortunately, I was unable to get into town in time to work today, so I hope someone else writes about the experience. By all accounts the  day was quite successful, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow.

However, I did the opportunity to put some faces to the names and disembodied conference call voices this evening at a small after-work, drinks & apps get-together. For instance, it was a pleasure to meet in person Asa, our "Prince of the Pergola," who graduated in 2003.

Asa was born the year I graduated from Roeper.

And though, yes, it's true that a Lowe's worker might have thought that Asa was Amy's son when they were picking up wood the other day, I kind of love the fact that this experience is bringing us together, erasing the differences of years, and showcasing our commonalities in spirit.

  1. P.S. Two more commonalities Asa and I discovered:
    1.) We had the same experience with a Roeper teacher. I'll say no more in order to protect the not-innocent, formerly badly behaved students.
    2.) Mom-approved porn: Though a funny concept, probably not gonna happen.
