Am I ready?

I just drove into town as four log trucks rolled out.

I have my slide rule, gold pan, blank canvas, International Pathfinder 8000 8-Band Radio, and my baseball bat. I’m as ready as I get.

Read in the New York Times Book Review yesterday that Nicholson Baker just wrote a (nearly 800 page) book about being a substitute teacher for 28 days. The review said this:

“I felt drained, numb, brain-dead,” Baker says after his fifth day of teaching. I felt the same way after finishing his hefty book – which is merely to say that I understood it.

Ha! This is me starting year 10. And that sounds like the bell.
