Addison yawned. “Sounds good to me.” She glanced at the clock, two-thirty a.m. “Ready to snuggle and sleep?”
Megan scooched up next to Addison. “Uh huh.” She wrapped her arms around Addison. “I love you, baby.”
“Love you too.”
Addison checked her phone Friday morning and saw a missed call from Sara had come through while she and Megan had been at the restaurant, most likely when she had bolted to the restroom for a brief reprieve. True to form, she had left a voice mail message.
“Hey Addison, it’s me, your best friend in the whole wide world. Thanks for the picture. I guess this means you and Megan are taking things to the next level. Call me when you get this message. Love you. Bye.”
With the sun breaking first light, Addison deleted the message and returned the phone call to avoid an unnecessary ass chewing. “Rise and shine, it is question time,” Addison said when Sara’s raspy voice answered the phone.
Sara perked up when she heard Addison’s voice. “Hey you. It’s been a few weeks since we talked and in all fairness we’ve both been busy. You with Megan and me with Sam’s training.”
“Yes, speaking of Sam, how is he?”
“He’s getting humongous, spoiled rotten, and smarter than the average dog.” Sara yawned and swatted at Sam. “Knock it off.”
Addison laughed. “Let me guess. You’re letting him sleep with you and he’s giving you good morning kisses.”
“Smart ass,” Sara quipped, which fueled Addison’s humor.
“Come to think of it, my ass is smart, as are all my body parts, but my ass thanks you for singling her ou...

...erest of everyone involved, especially the student body, to suspend you while the investigation is ongoing.”
“What?” Addison stood, furious. “On what grounds?”
“Unbecoming moral and ethical conduct.”
Her throat burned from the rising bile. “Tell me something, Dr. Johnson, clearly I was the subject of the meeting so why wasn’t I informed?”
“This wasn’t my decision and my opinion met with opposition. I’m on your side, Addison. For now, think of it as a temporary reprieve. Take a vacation, get away from the rat race for a little while.”
“This temporary reprieve affects my income, health insurance, and pension. I may not have a say right now, but I will have my day in court.”
With boiling blood, Addison snatched her purse and satchel and marched out the door. Fine, if the school board wanted to play ball, she was going to bat and intended to knock it out of the park.

- In The Golden Ass, Lucius draws a strong parallel between the stepmother’s story and that of Meroe, the evil, old witch who kills Socrates when he tries to escape her lustful affections. The stepmother is metaphorically likened to a witch because doing so comments on the danger of a weak-natured woman who holds a position of power. Although no magical evils, such as the spells that Meroe casts upon Socrates, manifest themselves in the story of the stepmother, the emphasis on the unnatural transformation in her disposition and the perverse and sinful nature of her wanton affections symbolize her witchlike nature....

- Golden Ass Apuleius' Golden Ass, the only surviving novel of the Roman Empire, is a tale of a Greek nobleman devoting his life to the goddess Isis following his transformation to an ass and back. Although a work of fiction, the novel reveals a great deal about religion in Apuleius' society. This information, however, must be viewed with a critical eye. He incorporates stories from Greco-Roman mythology not to affirm their validity, but to reveal their commonness to society. Apuleius insults other religions that are not of the Pantheon with severe viciousness, while the general public may have been more open to them.... [tags: Apuleius Roman Literature Mythology Papers]
