I had an interview yesterday that is going to change the course of my life. I spoke with a professor at Marshall University about an idea I had for a business. He is a professor in business and not one to blow smoke up your leg if he believes your idea will fail. I pitched my ideas to him and he loves it.

I wish it would nag at me like a good secretary does. I often schedule stuff and set an alarm. The alarm goes off. I shut it down and then get sidetracked. I wish it would keep reminding me.
Prompt: “POOR MARCH It is the HOMELIEST month of the year. Most of it is MUD, Every Imaginable Form of MUD, and what isn't MUD in March is ugly late-season SNOW falling onto the ground in filthy muddy heaps that look like PILES of DIRTY LAUNDRY.” ― Vivian Swift,
