He is extremely wealthy. I mean he had a ring on his right hand that had an 11.2 karat diamond in it. And the other hand had an equally impressive ring on it. I don't want anyone to think I'm fantasizing about a summer business that lands me a 71 Corvette in show condition (though I wouldn't object, much like Tevya). I am just thinking that it would be fun to run a summer business. I suppose the best I'd dream it up to be would be a job that made me wealthy enough that I didn't really need to teach, but still did just because I enjoyed it. I wouldn't be able to be there every day obviously, so I'd need to hire a manager to do stuff for me. Maybe I'd teach a half day and then leave to do some stuff on my company, and I would never even get into school administration. Of course, that is the largest I dream it would ever get. More realistically, I'd like it to bring in an extra 20-30K over those four months. At least I think that is what I think I would need to make to have it be worth my while. But I've never had a family to provide for or a mortgage so I might be surprised.
Tonight for our FHE activity we played something called "bigger and better." It is where both groups get a penny and have to go apartments to see if someone in the apartment will give you something bigger and better and so on. Whoever comes back with the biggest and best thing wins. We came back with an FHE family of 13. They couldn't top that.
Over the weekend, we went climbing, Tyler, a friend of his, Stephen, Jeff Carruth, me, and Annette. It was the first time Stephen had met Annette and he told me that he had realized since coming to college that just because a girl doesn't get married her freshman year doesn't mean there is something wrong with her. He then said Annette was a great example of that, super fun and super cute. It felt good to have him to validate my past dating choice. Then again, most people are interested in Annette as I've mentioned before.
Jessica gave me some homemade bread last night which was super nice of her. The bread is very good, I ate it for dinner tonight. Just wanted to throw that out there.
