Remembering Louie

Morning darkness, loads of essays, plantar fasciitis, weariness from coaching soccer, and general ennui with the constant routine were getting me down, until I remembered what Louie Zamperini had to endure . . . and how he had to endure it without Wikipedia Click-Olympics, Tetris, or Netflix . . . and now I feel better.

I think you should have to wait a full year before resting on the laurels of a particular post. Maybe two. It's like a sitcom clip show at the end of Season 1: not enough time has gone by to make us wistful or have even forgotten it.

he had to eat a seagull's liver, i'm sure he could have handled some heel pain . . .
