A list: things consumed while grading a huge stack of essays*.
1. Medium coffee, cream and sugar, from Dunkin.
2. Wild Berry Power Bar.
3. Countless Toasted Ritz crackers spread with braunschweiger**.
4. Reese’s Pieces.
5. Can of Pepsi.
6. Enormous slice of homemade garlic pizza (courtesy the resident chef, B).
7. Handful of Lay’s dipped in French onion dip (abandoned soon–too salty).
I have about 8 papers left (out of the 30 or so I started with), and I’m seriously contemplating the Samoas hiding in the freezer. And the only reason I don’t completely hate myself right now is that we’ve got 13 on the training schedule tomorrow.
*This over the course of the day, of course, lest you think I am absolutely disgusting. Which, of course, I am. Since I also had lunch at Ponderosa today during Big J’s hockey tournament. And I won’t even tell you what I ate there.
**Liverwurst. No one I know loves it as much as I do, and I tend to think it’s because I’m chronically anemic.
