Speaking of things being worth it...

Remember this post?

Well, today I got my copy of Irreantum. That's a literary magazine published by the Association of Mormon letters. You can buy a copy online, but mine was complimentary. Why, you ask? BECAUSE THEY PUBLISHED ONE OF MY POEMS IN IT! =)

Jacob and I happened to have a bottle of sparkling cider handy, so out it came in celebration. Jacob drank his entire glass at once, which caused his eyes to water and his voice to crack as he grinned and attempted to yell "Good for you!" afterwards. Which was hilarious and made us laugh for a good two minutes. Maybe you had to be there. But for the record, laughing hysterically after drinking a lot of sparkling cider is a sort of uncomfortable experience.

But it was worth it.
