First Day of School

Price of campus parking for the Honda of Power, Miss Ming Vauze:

















$92. FYI, this is not actually Ming, but rather one of her sister girls from the same model year in the same color...she's shy.

Price of one semester's worth of law books, even after finding used copies of torts and contract law books at another store and walking through the rain to return the new copies you bought an hour earlier at Barnes & Noble Campus Bookstore Bastards:























$700.59. Seriously, this is really $700 worth of books. I asked the clerk if anyone had ever cried at the register, and she had the nerve to giggle.

Price of feeling like this...














as opposed to your classmates who all look like this:























Not priceless, but it is going to cost you at least three Stoli Vanil and Diet Cokes. See, the thing is, my friends have been almost exclusively older than I am at almost any time in my life (Dr. Chad and Rhoda being the exceptions to that rule). As would be expected of someone who acted 40 when he was 12, I don't typically relate even to many people my own age, much less hang with a bunch of 21-year-olds. I have no earthly idea what to talk about with these children other than school, and no one wants to talk that mess all the time. I'm afraid I'm already becoming the nutty old guy in the corner.

Between that and the fact that I already have a boatload of homework even though classes don't start until Monday, I'm freaking out just a wee bit this evening. Poor Craiggers...he should be happy that I drink.

Me thinks you'll be singing a very different tune by next semester...everyone I know who has gone to law school ends up eating, breathing and sleeping the law for 3 years straight...or 3 years gay...ok, you know what I mean.
