This is lesson #50 of 100.

Lesson #50 – I’m A DORK

Technically I’m a DORKS but that doesn’t sound right. We are DORKS is true in a grammatical and literal sense (since we number 5), but this concerns the lessons learned of one person, me. So, I’m a DORK. Q.E.D.

The Distinguished Order of Royal Kindred Spirits (DORKS) officially celebrates its 20th anniversary this Fall of 2009. Our Patron Saint is Jerome Lester Horwitz and our motto is “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, et Bière!” If this leaves you puzzled then read no further. You will never understand. This association began long before being formalized with a name, but with that naming came recognition that here was something to be nourished and preserved. Thus, our charter declares:

So we come together twice yearly to relive the past, renew the present and rededicate the future.
We are stronger for having known each other all these years.
We sincerely believe that there is no greater compliment
than to be called


We were friends in high school and we remain friends as we approach retirement. We were there at the beginning and we will be there until the end. We are no longer young and we no longer have all our hair but we retain the comradeship that first brought us together. We celebrate and commiserate. We laugh and we cry. We fall down and (most times) we get back up. We are free to be startlingly brilliant or pathetically dumb in each other’s presence. All things are possible. All things are good.


These are my friends and I am one of them.


I will be eternally grateful for the privilege of being a DORK.
