--- 1 ---My cell phone company loves me so much that it's willing to wake me up the middle of the night -- two days in a row -- to ask if the service has improved. Sprint had a tower outage which left us with limited service at home for a couple of days. After hearing my complaints last Friday, a supervisor said the tower would be back online by Sunday, and Sprint would call me to verify that my service was back. Well, I appreciate that they fixed the tower just before midnight Friday night, but I wish they hadn't tried to call me at that very moment to let me know. I ignored that call but answered when they called again just before midnight Saturday. I said, "You're really calling me in the middle of the night to check on my service?" Then I gave the Sprint rep an earful of click, if you know what I mean.
But what they mostly did for three-and-a-half hours each day was eat (breakfast, snack and lunch!), play on the playground, blow a few bubbles and watch cartoons including the, uhh, highly educational Scooby Doo and The Snorks. A couple of times, they did try to measure bubbles and compare which type of gum produced the biggest bubbles. But this was hardly a deep educational experience. As one parent said, we could have saved $120 and blown bubbles at home.
tweet about the second commandment. I have to admit, the only reason I started using Twitter was to get quick updates on Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline news last summer. But now I've branched out.
The cool kids always sit in the back of the school bus. Well, not always. My elementary school posted this picture from the mid-1970s of kids on the bus heading to a kindergarten field trip. I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure I'm the kid in the back on the right (see arrow). Clearly the Moe (from the Three Stooges) hairstyle was extremely popular back then.
