See the kid in the dunce cap?

That would be me.

Who knew today was Columbus Day?! To be certain, I was quite aware on FRIDAY that MONDAY was Columbus Day.

But that was Friday.

Today is Monday. So…at approximately 8:00 a.m. this morning, I’m racing to get gas, taking a new route to the college and amazed at how quickly we are making our way downtown. Down Broad, left on Jefferson, left on Spring Street. No traffic!

College parking lot: Empty.

College campus: Deserted.

BECAUSE IT IS COLUMBUS DAY!

Maniacal laughter at the steering wheel (that would be me!) Seriously irritated college student, in the passenger seat.

“Tell me I did not get up BEFORE 7:00 a.m. to come to school on a FEDERAL HOLIDAY!”

Yes…she attends classes in COLUMBUS, Ohio. You’d think I would’ve kept that connection within the ever dimming recesses of my brain. Columbus Day is a pretty big event around here.

Sheesh…I’m batting a thousand…at least I got her there on time!

Just one more “mother/daughter bonding moment” in the nut house!
