Sunday, April 20, 2008


It's April 20th, 2008, and I am celebrating the fact that this date is on a SUNDAY this year.

4/20 may be just an ordinary date to the blissfully ignorant, but if you work among teenagers, you know this is the infamous Day To Get High or to just Spend All Day Talking About It.

Both good reasons for me to be happy I am not hanging out with adolescents today. Otherwise, as it would be the topic du jour on campus, you would likely find me sighing, rolling my eyes, reminding teachers to be on the sniffout for possible potheads, and correcting students who erroneously think it's Bob Marley's birthday.

Next year 4/20 falls on a Monday...maybe it will be Spring Break.

Not likely.
