I wish I could go to Disneyland in the rain today. Instead I have to make a salad and bring it to my Art Appreciation class for my final. It's worth 200 points, believe it or not.
I suspect I am making far more salad than is actually necessary. A bunch of other people are supposed to bring salad too. But when you ask an Italian to bring food we tend to bring more than enough for everybody. It's a cultural thing, I guess.
