They Didn't Ask Me


I am sitting in my office in Everett Tower on the main campus of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. First time since my last Final Exam back on 25 April 2013, when I was very sick and thought my students had given me the late flu that was going around.

That was 237 days ago.

I've cleared the stuff in my mailbox, talked over labs and the Physics Help Room with our lab supervisor, said hello to a couple of people and gotten my parking permit. The latter was pretty amusing -- it was packed with people, but they were mostly uniformed Public Safety officers and the parking clerks having a potluck lunch. I tell you, never have I been so happy to be in the Parking Services office as I was today, given my troubles. Hell, the sun came out. (grin)

Just need to check a few more things, then hit the road again and come home.

Success. Achievement unlocked.
