today was spirit bowl at my high school. each class, plus the faculty, compete against each other in showing school spirit. i got to participate as a tug of war member and fight song singer. i'd never heard the fight song before and my hands still hurt from tugging, but i'm pleased to report the faculty took 2nd place - which is something since the whole thing is rigged to let seniors win. ah, one of the few highlights of being a high school teacher. some people like dainon get to go to ireland for their job, but i get to pull a rope and wear a gray t-shirt that says, "we might be old but we're still wild."
