So here I sit, violating the heck out of the Brigham Young honor code while writing this, typing with one hand . . . and drinking an iced tea with the other.

But at least I'm being honest about it. "Be honest" is at the top of the BYU Honor Code list. Here's the whole thing:

l Be honest

l Live a chaste and virtuous life

l Obey the law and all campus policies

l Use clean language

l Respect others

l Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse

l Participate regularly in church services

l Observe the Dress and Grooming Standards

l Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code

So let's see, I wrote "heck" instead of the other word, so I'm good there. In fact, at this moment, I'm batting about .667 and feeling pretty good about myself. I suppose that as a sophomore in college, I would have hit well below the Mendoza line. On the other hand, if I had to take the SAT this year, I wouldn't get into college at all. It all evens out, I guess.
