Turning in my 'Card'

My last day of class for the semester was on Friday. I now have three weeks of freedom until school starts up again in January

Our class days are each 9 hours long, with an hour for lunch and a few breaks during the day. During one of the breaks, my classmate Mark, a naval officer, and I were chatting.

Mark: "Did you go to work on Wednesday (Dec 10)?"
ME: "Umm, yeah...of course. Why wouldn't I work?"
Mark: "I figured you'd take off to protest the Prop 8 thing?"
ME: "Why would I do that?"
Mark: "Dude, it was 'Call in Gay Day' on Wednesday. Pete (a mid-level exec with a construction firm) and I were talking about it at study group and we figured you be out of work."
ME: "Seriously I had no idea. I'm totally out of touch with those kinds of things."
Mark: "Don't you find it a little disturbing that you have no idea when your people are doing things?"
ME: "I think it's more distrubing that the navy guy and the construction guy knew about 'Call in Gay Day' and neither of you are even in the Village People."

(Pause)

Mark: "Point taken."

Love you!

I should know better than to read your blog at work on my reader. I nearly fell out of my chair when I read this. I started laughing before I finished it so I missed the Village People reference the first time. I was sharing it later and had another great laugh over that!

THANK YOU!

Have a Merry Christmas!!!
