Day Five

Like a lot of schools, SU’s first day of classes is tomorrow. But I
don’t teach until Tuesday, so the plan is to jam on the diss in the morning and
then head over to The Great New York
State Fair
for the afternoon and early evening (a dinner of deep fried
Oreos?). Special happenings at the fairgrounds: Day five, which means
Senior Citizens’ Day and Dairy Day. I’m too young to capitalize on the
first one (although, what about this here sun spot the shape of Onondaga Lake?),
but there will be milk to chug and ice cream to slurp down. Also, cheese.
And bunnies in cages, goats on leashes, etc.

And then I teach on Tuesday morning, after the new semester’s dust has
finally started to settle.
