On Friday, I arose at 5:30 AM from my “slumber” that never quite came. My brain had been waiting for the last drop of sleep to release from the bottom of the metaphoric plastic cup all night. By 6:10, I was dressed and headed into the frigid silence of Houghton’s suffocatingly dark morning with a fellow undergraduate. Her wet, black hair was gradually freezing as she tried not to sprain an ankle on McNair hill in her heeled leather boots. As we walked, we discussed the flaws in “cold as X” similes, futilely trying to keep our minds off the temperature and the time… not that we were capable of thinking about much else at that hour anyway. We were on our way to meet others who were heading to the Writing across the Peninsula conference in Marquette, MI.
