Awoke in the land of the rising suns. (This is a bald joke.)
Band, orchestra and choir all performed admirably. Always an honor to be among these peeps.
These two won an award.
And these two won all the awards, which they promptly passed away to the students after recognizing the trophies as nothing more than plastic recognition symbols for work whose true significance lies in the vast impact it leaves on students lives, not in the temporal, fleeting bliss of a job well done in contest. There in the auditorium, choral, or band rooms at ten o'clock in the morning on dead Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, are fine men and women at work. Am infinitely grateful for people like MLP, Mr. Lill, and Ms. Martinez. Knowing all this didn't stop me from getting my picture taken with every trophy. Feels good on top baby!
Then we were teenagers, which was fun.
And once again, Annie won at life.
Good night America.
