Making History Since Nineteen-Nordy Four

In a stunning series of events, Craig “Cheezer” Paradis slept through Christmas this year.

“I don’t know what happened,” Cheezer said when woken at 8:15 this morning by his roommate Chris Nobile.

Here is what we do know:

At 5:30 PM on Christmas Eve, Cheezer contemplated going to Wong Dynasty before he was alerted in a text a half hour later from Brant Harmon that Wong is no longer open.

He then, from wire reports, made a bacon and cheese omelette for himself before baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies he placed on the counter, along with a glass of two percent milk, for Santa Claus.

After eating the omelette he played shirtless Guitar Hero for the next hour and a half.

Shortly after 9:30, he was tucked into bed by his roommate. “I’ve been a good boy this year,” he told Nobile.

Those were the last words he spoke for nearly a day and a half. He woke up this morning, sleeping nearly 36 hours. That is a class record and one of the top five-marks set by any man, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

As to how he slept that long, Paradis was unsure but attributed it to the following:

  1. Nobile didn’t wake him up like he normally does.
  2. He was dreaming of sugar plums dancing in his head.
  3. He forgot to set his alarm.
  4. He was tired.
  5. He did it for our class.

The last may be the most important reason, Cheezer admitted. And if need be, he said, he will sleep even longer if it means our class finally getting the respect it deserves.

“I will sleep forever if I have to,” Cheezer said this morning while still in bed. He rubbed his eyes several times before putting his head back on his pillow and taking a quick nap, proving just how much he loves the Class of ’94.

“If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.” – Bob Hope

We are down to the wire and still need your help in making this year’s drive for the food pantry more successful than the last.

All we are asking is for you to drop off one, or two, cans of unused food that may be in your kitchen cupboard or cabinet between now and Friday.

Should you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, checks can be made out to the: Wachusett Food Pantry.

You can drop off donations through this Wednesday until 5 PM at Carrie’s Creation at 788 Main Street, Holden MA 01520.

If Wednesday does not work for you then you can still donate through Friday evening by dropping off your donations at the home of Megan (Hehir) Marshall at 27 Tanglewood Road, Sterling, MA 01564. Tanglewood Road is off South Nelson Road which is off of Beaman Road.

Thank you for everyone who has donated so far. We hope if you have time that you will donate just one can or a box of food as residents are in need of the pantry’s services now more than ever.

And remember whoever donates the most to this year’s drive will receive: (1.) Free admission to our next reunion (2.) An entry on our blog (3.) The respect and admiration of your peers.

Anyone can donate – not just people in our class. We would appreciate it if you forward this to friends and family who might be interested in helping.

We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
