Call it 'A Series of Fortunate Events' if you will. First, the November schedule moved Santa's arrival back and shortened the season to 7 weeks. Second, there is a new scheduling software that looked at my availability and said, 'nope!' There is another 'Bye' week that sneaked by. Since I have not been scheduled as the big guy, I've been working as an Elf. And I may have done a little too good of a job of it.
Now I'm worried that I've proven myself to be a better elf than a Santa. There are worse things I guess, I wonder if this is how professional backup quarterbacks feel? Am I destined to having the Christmas season equivalent of giving high-fives to the place kicker and fetching Gatorade.
|That is legendary Mizzou quarterback Chase Daniel . . . oh and Drew Brees is there too.|
Non-Fiction has been largely absent the past few months. So to swing myself back towards the light, I figured I would need something to satisfy my fiction cravings while still being Non-Fiction. And I think I found it. Meet my next selection, The Lady and Her Monsters: A Tale of Dissections, Real-Life Dr. Frankensteins, and the Creation of Mary Shelly's Masterpiece by Rosanne Montillo.
Frankenstein holds a very special place for me. I first read it in 6th grade in a very dark and lonely place in my life. I am looking forward to cracking this one open.
