CHAPTER 15,552
IN WHICH MIKE EXPLAINS THE MEANING OF HIS LOGO
 

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

- Robert Frost
 

I was never one to look for deeper meaning in literature, so when my eleventh-grade English teacher suggested Mr. Frost had a purpose in repeating the last line of his famous "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening", I was compelled to question....

"How do you know he meant to write that?" I asked.

She stood there staring at me, silent in front of everyone.

"What if he was just at a loss for the last line, and, you know, repeated it, just to be done with it?" I continued.

She hung her head, shaking it slowly side to side.  I obviously was doomed to fail this class.

 

And that is the peril of trying to interpret too much (or too little) meaning into something.

 

I got the nickname "Monk" from a running club that also likes to drink beer.  I prefer Belgian beer, so when I first led a run, I had Chimay on trail, and that's when I got the name.  I also take dance classes and had a gig with the 76ers for a couple years.  The logo is a dancing monk.  Get it?
