A Day in the Life of Joel

Okay, for the hand full of people (granted, the hand might possibly be missing a few fingers) who actually care I have decided to let you in on the chaos and coolness that was my Monday. It is fairly typical and only the names, dates, and actual events have been changed to protect the innocent. Actually, this was my day. Enjoy.

Ooooh, Joel're gonna be in trouble when I tell teacher about you!
Sleeping in class...come on now.

And I bet that tonight, your dreams will be filled with visions of Barry Bonds, the Non-MVP (can you spell Pujols?) being pummeled in the groin over and over by a 9-year old cancer patient. Don't feel guilty for enjoying it.

Slow down, you move too fast. You gotta make the moment last--just kickin' down the coblestone. Looking for fun and feeling, um, well, feeling groovy, there, Joel. Yes, groovy.
