Just the Facts Mam

I don’t have much time at the moment, but here are the highlights:

I chose Ohio State.  This really wasn’t that hard of a decision.  Rochester definitely would have had some benefits, but Ohio was one of my top two schools and Rochester was probably my 4th pick.  So I guess I’m a Buckeye, which is perhaps the dumbest of all mascots.

More importantly, I bought the Captain Awesome shirt, along with the Loch Ness Imposter one.  

I made my first culinary purchase ever: a George Forman Grill.  Admittedly I bought it because it was on sale, but I’m still pretty sure this indicates I’m an adult.

I taught my first full-fledged Sunday school lesson (I’m not counting my lessons in China, which were of dubious accuracy.)  No one threw anything and people actually volunteered to answer questions to I count it as a success.

Congratulations! Here's the first thing you need to know as a buckeye: O-H!
When someone yells this to you, you have to yell back: I-O!
Now that you know that, you're ready to go.
Oh, and of course you know that you'll have to bring buckeyes back to Rochester whenever you visit. Yum!

Oh, look at the crazy obligations already piling up and you haven't even started the semester. Now, what color Forman did you buy? I've found ours exremely useful and am looking to upgrade to the bigger sized one. So, what does that make me?

I'm not surprised. Glad you finally have some direction. Guess you don't have to worry about finding a place in the white coat ghetto now.

When do you start?

What are buckeyes?

BTW--

nearly universally, Kenyans thought Ohio was pronounced Oh-hee-oh. I suggest you try converting the locals to it.

Congratulations, Christopher. It's always a good feeling to have those major life decisions out of the way.

You will enjoy the midwest. Now I have an excuse to go visit Cleveland. I never made it there while I was in Bloomington.
