Student discount?

February 28. Day 243.

I could have wept for joy.

Swimming pool? Getting a tan? IN FEBRUARY!????

What was I doing in Boston all those years...

That's right. This weekend (for it's Monday as I write) I did something I'm totally unaccustomed to. Nothing.

I broke in a new bathing suit. Sat by the pool for hours. Chatted. Read. Stared into space. Turned onto my belly. Turned back. Swam. Hopped into the jacuzzi. Repeated.

Had a smoothie, then another.

Had a taco, then another.

Went to a movie.

At the theater, I asked to get a student discount.

"I need to see your ID."

"I don't have it on me, but I promise I'm a student. Any way you can take my word for it?"

"I need your ID."

Fine, no go.

The movie was "Paul Blart: Mall Cop." A perfectly inane ending to a perfectly brilliant day.

Gained: A splash of summer vacation -- months early.
