it was time for initiations on monday. mark (the other mark) received more than his fair share of blows. and the amazing thing about it was that i was not the contributor to his beatings. for the first time in a long time (maybe ever), i didn't hurt him in any way. he got jeffed, billed, 1 kidney billed, and maybe even bogied. not marked.
perhaps it was because his name is already mark that i didn't inflict. perhaps there's some corollary about a mark can't mark another mark, or two marks cancel each other out. perhaps i've changed, i'm not longer the marker, and others have taken up that slack. after being monday's whipping boy, let's hope he returns tomorrow. i'll be there.
