A day in the life of one William Mark Witherspoon
The Daily’s dear editorial adviser, Mark Witherspoon — or, as he’s more affectionately known, Spoon — is off in New York City for a newspapering convention.
He takes off a couple times per year to such conventions. Once a year, the students even go with him.
While he’s gone, he’s good about corresponding with his left-behind students via email: answering their many questions, offering up his insight or, in rarer occasions, sharing tidbits about his life.
This is one of those stories about his life.
After I came out of the Broadway musical I just saw, I stopped into Jamba Juice to get a Mega Mango smoothie, and two young pretty things asked me if I wanted to entertain them in my hotel room. I told them I thought that they would be wonderful company, but I was going to have to decline their very generous offer. It’s been a long time since I’ve been propositioned by two young prostitutes. Thought you might want to know that so you could have that picture in your brain as you went to sleep tonight.
Glad you got back alive.
Such is another day with Spoon. I can’t imagine it any other way.
