Yesterday Miss W and I went on the first ever great big Honors College Chicago Field Trip. Â We had a fantastic day. Â We spent the morning at the Field Museum where Miss W finally got to see Sue, a lifelong dream for her. Â She picked out the perfect Sue-venir, a cuddly version of the great T-Rex. Â In the afternoon we walked next door to the Shedd and awwwed over the otters. Â Everybody knows otters are the cutest animal ever invented. Â Ever. Â Miss W had a blast and completely loved hanging out with the college crowd. Â She impressed them with her wit and smarts, of course, and was a big hit. Â She even got to play a small but pivotal roll in a student film! Â (And she was hi-larious.) Â I have such a great job. Â W said more than once that she was so lucky to get to tag along. Â She said it was the best day ever. Â It was pretty great for me too.
