Tenure

Got it.

Everyone at work seemed to figure I was a shoo-in so no one is making a big deal of it. They're saying things like, "Well, yeah, of course." Which I suppose is way better than having everyone seem relieved or shocked. But still. Is it ungrateful to describe this as an anticlimax? Or am I needing external hoopla to make it seem real?

Oh well. Deep inside my Cheshire Cat is grinning--this is the grin that comes from the part of me that defies the part of me that for some reason is never much impressed by anything I do.

This weekend, after commencement, I'm taking the Cat into the garden to drink a split of champagne at twilight while the dogs wrestle. That's pretty much as good as it gets.
