So there are three school days left in the year. Today the yearbooks came out.

One of the Smart Kids asked if I could sign her yearbook. Sure, I said.

The yearbooks now are a bit different than the ones I had. The main autograph space is in the back, in a separate thin booklet which is lightly glued to the back hardcover. I took only a moment to look over the new advance in yearbook technology, which was long enough for the student to point out how the yearbook's binding was new too. She was "such a nerd," she said, she "knew about all kinds of book binding."

I turned to the front page of the signing booklet, took out one of the teacher's Sharpies, wrote "It's perfectly fine to be a nerd," and signed my name.

It was something that needed to be written.

I wish I'd had teachers like you, son.

There was a Senior Day assembly to wrap up the year and bid the seniors farewell before they graduate tomorrow.

No lie: As the assembly let out, I had a crowd of seniors around me waiting for me to sign their yearbooks.

And I did. Each one.

Felt good, man.
