Last night, mother bear and I attended my college’s Honors Day banquet. I was loopy in the beginning because I had guzzled too much cough syrup on an empty stomach just before leaving home. I didn’t realize I was loopy until my favorite professor was talking to me and I honestly couldn’t muster up words to respond. Awkward.
So the evening started with a reception in the lobby. Fun fingers foods were served and I was able to talk to some of my old classmates whom I hadn’t seen since the summer. I didn’t realize I missed them until yesterday! I actually made some really good friends in grad school. Gonna miss them.
Back to the cough syrup – I still have a pretty bad cough and I didn’t want to be hacking through an entire banquet and awards presentation. As I walked out the door, I took a big gulp of Robitussin. yuck. It calmed the cough but made me a little light-headed. I thought it was because of the car ride. I hadn’t been in the car for that long in about 2 weeks. At the reception, as I tried to express my excitement for some upcoming opportunities, my prof said “are you sure you’re excited? you seem pretty melancholy.” I said “yeah, sure I’m excited”. He said “oooooookay. If you say so”. lol
Anyway, the evening was great. I sat next to the most hilarious classmate I’ve ever had!
I’m waiting for the pics to be posted online and I’ll steal some to post here. lol
That’s all. 🙂
