Tis the Vigil of the Feast of the Nativity of a certain Dominican named Michael.

When he joined us 5 years and a million air miles ago, he was just a sprout of oh, 25. Or 30. Tops. With hair.

You know the type - or maybe you don't. But I do. I've spent the last 14 years trying to hold my own with charming, wickedly brilliant OP's named Michael. You have no idea.



See that wicked, jesuitical gleam in his eye? Desperate times required desperate measures.

My only equalizers were height and treachery. (Must all Dominicans be so short?) I promised him Hawaii. I gave him North Dakota in February. Over and over again. With the occasional day off in Bunkie. Lousiana.

Five years later, I have succeeded in reducing him to a frazzled shadow of his former macho weight-lifting self. My sources tell me that Fr. Mike could hardly blow out the six dozen birthday candles on his cake tonight.



I fear that I have gone too far 'cause my plan was for Fr. MIke to slog through the November rain and snow and bring home the old Institute bacon while I lounge by the fire, sipping Irish creme lattes and thinking great thoughts.

But if our ID readers join in with a rousing chorus, I'm sure that he'll be rejuvenated.

Just follow the bouncing alien:

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
