Think you have too much time on your hands? Not compared to Eric Smith ’99.

I have posted on here a few times now of when the alumni contact for my class asks us for material to post in the alumni magazine. Obviously they want news of births, weddings, and other successes. Instead of talking about the factual mundane banalities of my own day to day world, I like to instead make up or exaggerate stories of failure. I write/act in them as if I am proud of these accomplishments, and then see if they get published amidst everyone else’s discussion of how they just cured Polio in Nepal, helped Guam overcome adversity, or used their i-banking bonus check to buy Peru.

Read the whole thing and stand in awe.
