I make a lot of jokes at work.

I teach Michigan History to 4th graders, and I say a lot of funny things in the process.

The kids almost never laugh… and that makes me feel good.

If a 4th grader laughs at my jokes, I can’t really be that funny.

Thing That Makes Me Feel Like An Adult # 259

Listening to the radio while driving to work, and turning up the volume when the traffic report comes on.

This Shouldn't Be Funny

There was not one good looking kid in that whole class— that entire class was ugly. I’m gonna find out later that it was like a special needs class or something, and then I’m gonna feel like a dick.

Anthropologic Nightmares

I woke up in the middle of the night and had to get to the computer immediately.

I had a dream about ancient Peru, and for the life of me, could not remember the difference between the Moche and the Nazca pottery styles from the 6th and 7th centuries.

Never study Anthropology. This stuff will haunt your dreams.

Thing That Makes Me Feel Like An Adult #172

Ironing a white dress shirt and then making sure my pants have a perfect crease down the front, parallel with the pinstripes.

As a museum professional… I’m not sure if I should be amused or appalled by this.

The Darjeeling Limited

It’s got all the great things that come with every Wes Anderson comedy flick, but with more poignant spiritual substance.

I’m in love with everything about this movie and can’t stop thinking about it. It’s so visually stunning— I want to design an entire house around the colors in this movie and live there forever.

Governments are Easy

Some people play fantasy football or fantasy hockey…

But at the museum, we play fantasy government and today was heated.

After I made Stevens T. Mason my Vice President, I appointed all of the Doozers to any remaining cabinet positions.

I like their work ethic.
