But DudeJeans took my little brother out with him again this morning for a last day of elk hunting — his buddy didn't get an elk, and they were trying to make a team push on his behalf. I couldn't go because I had too much work to do today. Meanwhile, it's 1:30 AM and their phones are all off (i.e. out of service, it's a wilderness area) and nobody's home yet. I'm not worried, per se, as they're all competent (well, my little brother can be sort of an airhead, but he's 20, so that's how it goes — he's got his outdoorsman shit relatively together, though). But I am a little annoyed and uneasy. It's a SCHOOL NIGHT, guys!

ETA: They are back. Dude is home. In their absence, I drafted a maybe decent Lou Reed poem.
