the smartest kid on earth

Fresh from Leland, North Carolina’s premier 4th of July parade (see right*), my travels have returned me to Durham just in time for my summer to get extremely busy. I’ve actually received an unexpected deathbed reprieve tonight—contrary to expectations it turns out the [Undisclosed Location] training doesn’t really start until Friday. Which means Friday is the day that I’ll be blogging at a much less friendly pace, usually before I leave for work or else after I get home.

I should mention that driving back from Wilmington tonight we saw what was probably the single dumbest communal action I’ve ever see any group of humans take—literally thousands of people parked haphazardly all along the highway staring upwards at the fireworks, seemingly oblivious to the fact that they were meandering about randomly at the side of a 70-mile-per-hour road.

The idiot behind me who didn’t want to slow down despite the obvious stupidity of nearly every human being in the area takes top honors in the individual category.

Second prize in the “dumb individual action” contest goes to me, for forgetting to put suntan lotion on my shoulders or back. I’m so very burnt. Things will only get worse.
