Working and Partying

Academics either have the last of the preindustrial jobs or the first postindustrial jobs, because we can work any time on our stuff but generally have flexible schedules. Today's a good example. I have several things I need to do this week on the summer projects and writing, but it's also my son's sixth birthday today. I had a meeting at 11:00 a.m. this morning, but I'll be heading home soon to help Vincent's mom. I don't know if I'll have a chance to work on my work stuff at home, though.

What—you thought I meant alcoholic matters?
