It felt a little strange having my birthday this year. As it turned out, there were a couple of negative things that occured on that day. First of all, Don and I had to physically remove a student from the class. He was kicking and punching the whole way down to the office. We had to file a police report, which wasn't fun. It never feels good to physically remove a student. The other bummer came when I started up my truck after school. The engine was running very rough. As it turns out, I need a valve job. Ouch! I thought that these things didn't happen to Toyotas! Well, at 180,000, I can excuse it a little. But it was still disappointing. The highlight of the day was dinner at El Sombrero with the family. I don't think I have to worry about hitting 6/6/3006; at least not until after the antichrist!
