Big Fat Whale

Field Trip

The Brockton Historical Museum consists of three rooms: one for Rocky Marciano, one for Thomas Edison, who visited the city for something like a week, and one for shoes. Brockton was the shoe capital of the world until the invention of third-world labor.

Needless to say, I was less than impressed with the field trip and was more interested in the fact that my neighbor's class came with us.
