[Al's Breakfast, Dinkytown USA]
Coffee and a blackberry wheat pancake. Eat it up. Be happy.
A breakfast tradition held over from college days. (it's even better without chemistry flashcards!)
What a lucky dog I am to still be at the same campus I first came to 17 years ago, and still eating at the same breakfast counter.
Wait, does that say SEVENTEEN? I must have done the math wrong. oh my lord.
I like to say I liked college so much I never left. I have taken over 190 credits and had eight jobs. And spent a small fortune on blackberry pancakes.
I have done all kinds of jobs to stay at the U.
- Cafeteria Worker
- Museum Tour Guide
- Dishwasher (again--the U makes lots of dishes)
- Lab Tech
- Junior Assistant to the Junior Assistant Soil Scientist
You want to hear something sweet? Bella told me she is going to college at the U so that we can eat lunch together. SQUEE!
On this Homecoming week, I am thankful that for me, every week is homecoming!
