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.
