Summit up

Special to the DailyJeff (Doctor) Proctor enters his fifth decade today! Happy B-day honey, thanks for being such a great friend, husband and father to your boys. Much love, Kathy, Andy, Danny, Buck and Lucy.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column working up syllabi for all the college courses we’re going to be teaching.We were excited to read, as you all surely were, that Colorado Mountain College will be relocating here to Frisco. Well, supposedly. The catch is, they want somebody to donate them the land or a building or something. Ta-da! Enter Summit Up …Now, granted, we don’t have a lot of space here at the Corporate Suites (we have a “corner office,” albeit one corner of a broom closet, which we share with the custodial staff, our legally blind proof-reader and Scott, the guy who draws the comics for the paper), but what we do have, we’re willing to share.

In fact, we’re not just willing to share space, we’ll be happy to take over a few of the classes (which, if the college pays us what the paper pays us, the CMC folks will be saving plenty of money).Why would we do such a thing? The easy answer is because we’re as loony as three-martini penguins. But more importantly, we look really good in tweed jackets with elbow patches. And a pipe. Gotta have the pipe if you’re a professor. Then again, plenty of the students bring those to class anyway.Juuuusst kidding. (Ah, we crack ourselves up.)

So, anyway, if you’ll excuse us we need to go work up our lecture notes for economics (Lesson A: People who buy clothes for their dogs will never get rich), sociology (Chapter 1: All about The Man, and 50 ways to fight oppression with a toothbrush) and modern dance (“World Rhythms,” a choreographed two-step with our pal, Bishop Desmond Tutu).We’ll see you all next semester.***

You could tell us it’s Wednesday, but we wouldn’t believe you. (You know the winter’s off to a good start when you have no idea what day it is anymore.)Tell us a story, a joke, a poem, a stimulating, insightful rumination or what strange things you found in the dryer’s lint trap at, fax at (970) 668-0755 or just do your favorite bird call on the voicemail at (970) 668-3998, ext. 237.The court calls it contributing to the delinquency of minors, but we’re out teaching the children (well) …
