Today Is Lab Day
Attending my first two years of college at the Waterbury branch of UConn, there are things I remember as if it was yesterday. For instance, coming from the an outlying town meant that I had to take the bus from Middlebury, once I got a ride to Middlebury. The last stop was, of course, "The Green" in Waterbury.
Once off the bus, I would begin my daily trek up Prospect Street to reach the local branch's campus on now historic Hillside Avenue. Heading for "the cafe" before classes started for the day, I would organize my assignments and thoughts.
I had Chemistry on Friday afternoons, followed by the three hour lab ending at 5 pm.
Why in Heavens name I selected that class for Fridays I'll never know but every Friday, as I trudged up the steep hill, I would say to myself...today is lab day.
However, now...older, settled in, retired, without pressure of schedules, assignments and classes, when I say
today is lab day, it has an entirely different meaning.
Yes, Copper, today is Lab Day!
Note to readers:
Between me feeling exhausted and after having a very rough night with Copper Thursday, this is what you got today for "critters." The boy, my Bonehead, is feeling better today though which is a huge relief. And me, I am going to get some rest. Being a doggie Mom can be exhausting!
