Scraping and Clawing For Light, Fast, Delicious Tasting Lunch While Working

By Josh Resnek

When my stomach begins rumbling about 11:30 a.m. while I’m writing at my desk in my study on deadline day, I walk from my study to the kitchen.

Reflexively, I open the refrigerator door.

I look inside.

I am wondering, what the hell can I dream up as a treat with near to nothing inside the refrigerator?

New arrivals continue to stream in, according to officials. School Department officials insist there is a need for another new elementary school in order for teachers and all other personnel to have space as required by the state.

“Everett’s schools are increasingly overcrowded” said Superintendent of Schools Frederick F. Foresteire. “The layoffs did not help, either,” he added.
