A Note to Returning College Students
As summer break winds down we're staring down the barrel of the start of the fall semester. Students living off campus are starting to trickle back into the neighbourhood. My advice to these returning students is simple. Cheerfully wandering through the neighbourhood during daylight hours smiling to others on the street and admiring gardens and such will get you a warm welcome and maybe a dinner invitation or a batch of homemade cookies. Wandering the neighbourhood after dark, especially way after dark, in a noisy and possibly chemically enhanced state just might get you on the business end of a super soaker that may or may not contain water. I'm just sayin'.
