So it was fun catching up on 10th Grade Skillz this year, revisiting Night and Fahrenheit 451 and writing persuasive essays and such, but come fall I’m seriously going to have to buckle down–Lisa’s going AP. Good news is, her new gig is only ten minutes from Bellows HQ, instead of 40 miles away, so she’ll have much more time to hang out with me and pup and television and sweet lady beer. Bad news is, all those novels I flaked on in high school (I’m looking at you tess of the whatevers)? Well, no more excuses. If you don’t see me this summer, it’s because my wife is making me read Moby Dick. I’ll be spending so much time inside reading, it’ll be more like Call me Ish-PALE, am I right? Sorry, honey, no more Melville jokes.
All of which is, of course, to say: big time props to Mrs. Bellows on her new job. Thank the great good lord she doesn’t have to get up at four anymore.
