Returning to MIT after a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend is a swift uppercut to the jaw. Literally.
At basketball practice yesterday evening I got elbowed and now it hurts to chew. I'm not trying to appear sympathetic, I just want you all to appreciate the literary appropriateness of the way my physical body so quickly jumped in front of an incoming highspeed elbow, just so it could reflect my internal mood.
That being said, I had a very excellent Thanksgiving and post-Thanksgiving. Maybe I'll write more about all of the festivities later.
