Age Ain't Nothing But a Number

Last night I started the first day of my Microsoft Word class and my instructor was running late due to the horrendous weather last night, so we were standing outside of her classroom door and they all said in unison "let's start a sign-up sheet, slide it under the door, and come back next Monday. I'm looking at these women like they lost their damn minds. I didn't go back to school looking for a free trip, I didn't drive all the way to school for a "class is cancelled" sign. I took this course so that I can better utilize Microsoft Word to layout and format my books since I'm an independent publisher who don't have a big enough budget to hire someone to do those things for me. If class is cancelled, I'm pissed because I want to get my money's worth out of this class. Of course, I'm in class with a bunch of old women with minds of teenagers. How could they possibly think that an instructor missing a session is helping any of us?

Luckily for all of us, our instructor made it to class and walked us through course expectations and other issues that we may have had.

Four days until my birthday Saturday (January 30th). If you wanna send me a birthday gift by mail, do it TODAY before the post office closes. Be sure to mail it to:
