Today I met a co-worker at a local beer/pizza joint. Yes, the emphasis at this place is the beer. Food is secondary. With one week to go before summer classes start, we met to talk about a class that we both teach -- I'm teaching it this summer. A brainstorming, fueled with Honey Brown Ale (for me) and black & tan (for him). It's moments like this, talking about work (which for us is the equivalent of actual work) while sipping a cold beer, that I realize how very cool my job is.
But, we chose to sit on the patio. And after we spent 3 hours chatting about classes and stuff (heavy on the stuff), we left. And now I have a sunburn. Apparently, I'm too busy getting my daughters covered in sunscreen in the mornings to remember to cover myself too.
Damn! And ouch.
