back to real life

Last week, I had some Bowling Green exiles return for a quick visit, and they stayed with the spousal unit and I. Now they are gone, and there are some big adjustments to be made:

  • I have to actually do work again
  • I feel compelled to restart my daily schedule
  • I have returned to eating stuff other than cheese, cheese curds, and tubes of meat
  • my spousal unit is my only audience for jokes, and she's long since learned to ignore me
  • my house is considerably less cool than it was for my friends' visit
  • I no longer have to make sure I'm wearing pants or have shut the bathroom door

This is what it must be like for soldiers returning from distant lands.
