Brad was having problems getting through to one of his students who was more of a discipline problem than a learning-disabled child. Brad has been challenging him to read more and found out he likes video games also. Brad told him that if he could avoid getting into trouble for a period of time and bring his first quarter grades up, he knew an author and would get him to sign a book to the kid.
Well, George met all the criteria this last quarter, so Brad called me up and asked if I would mind signing a book to George.

Needless to say, I was tickled pink over the compliment. Unfortunately, I didn't have any copies of the book left, so Brad offered to procure it and mail it to me. He wanted to pay for the return postage also, but I told him that I'd be happy to pick that up for him. I felt it was the least I could do in this situation.
So, the book arrived tonight and I'll be signing it and trying to get it dropped off at the post office as soon as I can.
That is, as soon as I can get this silly grin off of my face.
