THURSDAY: In the clear light of day, the Solomonic solution to the student problem I thought of late on Wednesday sounds even better to me. E-mail First Year Team and get agreement. E-mail student. Prep lesson plan on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion." 8 miles on treadmill...which still isn't tracking mileage, but it is showing speed and I can do the math. Finish reading Lawrence Wright's Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief. Very interesting expose. One weird thing about reading on the Kindle: I did not realize I was almost done until I got to "Epilogue." It shows you the percentage of the text you have finished, but a book like this has a ton of back matter: endnotes, bibliography, etc. So the text ended at around 72%. Prepared flyer for neighborhood picnic. Oddly, I am now the neighborhood association president. Thankfully, this does not seem to involve a lot of responsibilities. Drive to a theater still playing "Fruitvale Station." "Fruitvale Station." Fantastic movie. You must see it if you haven't already! Afterwards, a guy who had been sitting in my row in the theater saw me checking out the mall map and tried to pick me up! Went out to my car and turned on my phone. A couple texts from Husband that said things like "They will decide whether to come home based on how she is feeling tomorrow." So I take it that my parents called and Child is sick? Why can't he write a text that actually makes sense? Call Husband. Not home. Call parents. Not picking up phone. Ugh. Drive home. Husband seems to be out at exercise class. Did not leave a note. So I guess Child isn't super sick. Parents call back! Child has no appetite and a cold, but no fever or vomiting. They decided to stay in NY state for the night. Whew! Good to hear her voice. E-mail back from student. Did not accept any of the options offered to him. Disappointed, but not at all surprised. Wrote in diary a little before bed.
