One of the joys of having kids is sharing the things you loved as a child with them and watching them enjoy the very same thing. You get to be a child and a parent all at the same time. It is probably one of parenting’s finest moments. Case in point- “The Wizard of Oz.” Unfortunately, as parents we tend to start that one too soon forgetting how scary the movie can be to a child. Ah, well we learn as we go.
On Friday night Jackie and I decided to forgo getting drunk and opted to watch the Presidential Debate instead! We joined our Political Communication class in the Dever Auditorium (located on campus at Westfield State College) where the debate was being aired on a big screen. The communication course is taught by Professor Tom Gardner, a longtime activist and Bunt girl favorite.
As a 21-year-old student at Westfield State College, I am telling fellow Westodians that Whip City Brew is the place to be! Well, it is if you are looking for a good time that won’t include sweaty people rubbing all up on you (Uh, I kind of am – Alicia) and loud loud music. If you are a fan of just breathing room in general you will like this bar.
Buntology frenemy and Westfield State College student Steve Cimino recently slipped us a news tip (is it just us, or was that sentence arousing?).
By IVAN CORDERO Sunday, Buntology’s newest employee (me!) and our friends took a day trip to visit New England’s Great State Fair — the Eastern States Exposition, aka the Big E. The final day of the Big E started off as a beautiful day. It was sunny, not too too hot, but it was nice. Lauren D., Christina R., and myself got into the Big E and we began our adventure.
Everyone makes mistakes — even surgeons have been known to cut off the wrong limb from time to time — but my experiences with the local medical facility go well beyond acceptable human error. As a matter of fact, I venture to say you will not believe me. If you were watching these events play out on a sitcom you would say ridiculous, this never happens.
EDITOR’S NOTE from ALICIA: Back in the day, my dear friend and I Stephen Beverly and I were more than just buddies. In high school, our relationship went much, much deeper than that. It was a torrid, complex bond we shared, one we’re still sorting out even now.
Just letting you know that Glenda has made her way out! Glenda the Gland has finally been killed off by a whole bunch of antibiotics. It took ten whole days but, I think she is gone for good. Can’t say that I will miss her but we had some good times together.
Here’s the difference between me and you, Math Teacher.
Welcome to the first installment of the Weekly Westfield Round-Up. I know we promised the round-up on Monday, but I’m still getting settled in here at WSC so mama is busy.
