I remember for an English class essay in High School I wrote a paper entitled "Help help I'm being repressed" (taken exactly from monty python) about how the Canterbury tales were not a true reflection of the life of the lower classes at the time, etc. My teacher was not pleased.
I was just thinking of you yesterday and wondering when exactly your birthday was. I know it's right after mine but I have a mental block against the date. :-) Happy 37th! May the year bring you joy and wisdom.
