Things I Love to Do on a Hot Summer Evening2 Sep 2009 / Paul Epps
My son’s going into 11th grade next week. He’s got a couple of honors classes, a couple of AP classes, Spanish 3 and a music class.
It looks like a very tough schedule to me — he’s also got college entrance exams this year — but that’s where his academic history has brought him and he says he wants to do it.
One thing I didn’t know about AP classes is that they start giving kids assignments during summer vacation. He’s working on ’em right now!
He asked me for a little help on the physics assignment so I get to do two things I love to do on a hot summer evening: sip premium tequila on ice with a lime, and solve problems like this:

Oh I’m in heaven!
