Last night I represented my alma mater in a college fair at a local high school. It’s hard to spread brotherly love in a town dominated by the Longhorns vs. Aggies rivalry (with an honorable mention for the Sooners). I couldn’t even give away all of my pens!
Oh well, more pens for me. A couple more college fairs and I should never have to buy a pen again.
The funniest thing is that I ran into a woman from Toastmasters! She’s the only member newer than me, and she happens to be a dean at that high school. I took the opportunity to ask whether there was someplace I could donate my extra literature after the fair. The guy who later received it in the library didn’t seem completely convinced that I’d gotten someone’s blessing, but it didn’t matter once I was out the door and beating feet across the parking lot, fifteen pounds of brochures lighter!
