Chronicle of One
Of Those Days
We all strut into a glass door once in awhile, stub our toe on the
leg of the bed, and read the wrong book just before the midterm.
Pain is the bare of existence, ask any modern playwright.
So fellow sufferers, I ask you rindulgence, identification, and
empathy, as I beat my breast today trying to purge the hurt from
my tender sensibilities.
Most days look like they'll be livable when I hit conscious-
ness in the morning and conjure the monumental tasks which
confront me. But I don't possess glowing illusory hopes when I
arise. My chief wish is that the day will at least be as good as
yesterday, which isn't a hell of a lot to ask for because yesterday
missed Nirvana by miles.
Well, today, one of the picket fences I had to vault was the
haircut. I find this an unpleasant experience even with a silent
barber, but today I hit a blabber. He was so friendly, and there's
nothing worse than a friendly barber when you're trying to wade
through the wordy quicksand of The Daily editorial page. And being
nearsighted as a bat, I have to close one eye and squint through the,
other just to make out the headlines, without my specs.
Maybe he saw the pose, or perhaps it was the fact that I was
really trying to read the editorial page, but he came out with a re-
mark that got the day off to a swinging start. "You know you've got
an awfully bad head," he said with a suave matter-of-factness. I
nodded instinctively and suddenly had a bald spot to remember him
by. And he blamed me for ruining his haircut.
From this pinnacle the day deteriorated. After slogging through
catalogues and time schedules, asking perfect strangers about pro-
fessors nobody's ever heard of, and making a bet with my counselor
on the score of a football game being played in the area, I tackled
the odious assignment of filling out preregistration forms. On com-
pleting the forms I flushed with the euphoria of accomplishment, I
mean I would have kissed Ma Kettle if she'd walked up and said hello.
Ah, how quickly the paper hustlers lacerated my ecstacy.
Some old babe with a snarl for a smile sauntered up to the blank
board of closed courses and casually tacked up a single number,
the first of the year, and my perfect preregistration alchemized
into a bloody mess. Guess who's got eight o'clocks next semester,
OK, you expect pain, misery, fingers in your eyes, dandruff
flakes on your lenses. But how many crises can you meet in one day?
Yes, things gbt worse.
You see there's this girl, first date and all that jazz. Well,
I called her up to put forth the agenda for Friday night and as
she picked up the phone I asked if Donna was in. So what's
wrong 'with that, you ask. Nothing, if Donna is her name, how-
ever Donna isn't her name. Immediately I realize that I'm in a
major predicament-a tongue tying entanglement-and while
she's protesting that there's no Donna at this phone number my
mind is flipping cartwheels trying to pick the right one in its
sloppy name file. I stammer in panic, I can't for the life of me
hook onto her name. I must be going senile at 20. Zelda, Alfrediest,
Mimi, Lola, Kitty, Hannah, Pearl, Anita, Letty, Leah, Molly,
Casper, Yvette, Damita, all the common girl's names, buzzed
through my consciousness while I spiritually plotzed on the phone.
She finally revealed it to me which ended the stammering but
started the apologies. What would you say in that position? Yes,
that's approximately the excuse I launched, too.
And they say these are the best days of mine life?

We the undersigned endorse the objectives of the Ann Arbor Viet Nam:
Day Committee. They, and all other'participants in the International
Days of Protest, are simply asking, in ways they deem appropriate,
that the American Government support its professed principles of in-
ternational law and self-determination. The grave implications of
our extended and brutal involvement in Viet Nand can no longer be ig-
nored. Our present policies perpetuate regimes without popular sup-
port, continue a war which threatens to annihilate large segments of
the populations of Viet Namn, and could lead to nuclear war. We be-
lieve it is the duty of every citizen to protest policies of his govern-
mient that he considers to be immoral. Silence in such circumstances
becomes tacit consent.
