The Unpleasant Impression of Jonathan Hoag

I arrived here at work today, first day of the week, first official day of the school year (no classes yet, they come at the end of February – this is graduation week for last years third graders), and I was an hour an a half late.  Actually the traffic was really bad this morning so I spent longer that usual on the bus.  The fact that I was very tired and hung over after retiring at about 4am this morning was also a contributing factor. Still, it was a bright start to my day when I saw a nice box addressed to me.  I knew what was in it because the name of the sender clued me.  I delayed opening it for about a half hour or so.  You know, just to build the anticipation and excitement.  Within lay The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag by Robert Heinlein.  A Heinlein first edition was actually in my hands!!  I don’t know about you, but this gets me excited.  Beautiful condition too… but I’m getting carried away here.  To cut a long story short, there were a couple of unfortunate surprises.  I’m going to do a photo review of this book in the next day or so, so keep this channel of the hyper-spatial relay open, as you might in the Foundation universe. Oh, The Crotchety Old Fan gave me a nice little mention in his blog.  Thanks Steve.
