A Good Evening

In my last school district, I was told that once upon a time, if teachers wanted to go out for a happy hour after the end of a long week, they had to go to the next suburb over. Heaven forbid a parent or administrator see you having a margarita or a glass of wine after a long week!
I'm in a smaller town now, but don't really worry about things like that. In fact, tonight I went to a joint birthday party for a student of mine and his mom. Had a couple margaritas, shared some good food and conversation, and was duly entertained by a precocious 4 year 362 day old and his big sister. Fun times. And they wouldn't even let me pay for my own drinks!

Not much else to say from here...
