I’m back from an all-nighter. I work with ten- to twelve-year-old boys in a church program, and on Friday night attended an annual lock-in in which about seventy boys eat pizza, drink lots of soda, and run around a massive church shooting Nerf darts at each other. It’s great fun, and it went off swimmingly.

I played as Neo from The Matrix. I wore all black clothes, plus a trenchcoat and sunglasses, and I carried a Nerf javelin that I’ve modified into a longsword. Judging by the squeals of the kids when they saw me coming, I was terrifying.

At times like this, I do love this work.
