There is perhaps nothing more satisfying than, after a long day of teaching, coming home to my best friend, Brutus. The love he shows me when I walk in the door is so uplifting that my troubles seem to vanish. He wags his tail in excitement, spins in circles: to the point I think he is going to fall over, and licks his nose like peanut butter is stuck to it.
My name is Hugh McMullen. I'm an educator, father, husband, curler, golfer, inspiring fly fisherman and chef.
This blog started as a sample for student writing based on 1000 Awesome Things by Neil Paricha. I liked doing it, so I thought I'd keep going.
