The feature is doing all right. It's been something like seven years since I last did one, when I was still writing for RockKansas. There's a bit of an awkward transition from college papers and blogging to writing a newspaper piece. Real, honest-to-God print journalism!
Thank God for coffee. And the fact that I don't have to stick around for the whole show. I just show up, gather the band, find somewhere decently lit, and knock off some shots.
Before that, however, I have to work my way through a high school football awards banquet. There will be food, and I don't necessarily have to pay attention. I must remember that I'm there to support my kid. I am also supporting not having to cook dinner and an excuse to dress sharp for the evening.
