Dennis has volunteered to be the first hot seat candidate. Just kidding. He never responded to my earlier post so he may totally object to this…I sure hope not. Actually he was nominated by Rex … so any backlash from this falls on him.
If you look back at the very beginning of this blog. It talks about Dennis.I smarted off to him about something last Sunday and the next communication I get is my new blog address. I was given a blog as punishment. I was going to dedicate a few entries to him and then just stop…but then this idea came to me. Have a fun place for people to just tell stories. And in this case…stories about Dennis.
Your assignment is to just write. You can write stories about him…compliments….ask him questions (he may not respond, but you can try it), whatever you want.
There is only one rule for the “hot seat”….HAVE FUN.
Let the games begin….
I’ll start. When I was in AIM back in 1992, I happened to be at Dennis’ house. He was an esteemed assistant that year and had offered to help some of us study for our ED test. I’m not the best of students and so I and several others took him up on this offer. It had started to snow really hard a little while before and there had been some discussion of a snow day. I’m not sure exactly how it went down but I believe Dennis was wanting to watch “Return of Benjy” or “Alex in Wonderland” and was trying to convince us to goof off instead of study. Although we really tried to stick to our principles his efforts were successful and we all decided that the next day would surely be a snow day and there would be no ED test.
Imagine our surprise when we woke up late and found out it was not a snow day. Yes…we had class…it was not cancelled.
I believe the comment Ed wrote on my test was, “I don’t even think you can get into heaven with a score like this, missy. ”
I want to give a big shout out to my hero Dennis the assistant. Thanks to him…I scored too low to get into heaven…but apparently it was high enough to get me sent to Portugal.
