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