First Day of School
Last minute schedule changes. Late buses. “Sit down, Mikey.” Overcrowded lunch lines. Kids not in the computer. “Sit down, Mikey.” A wasp to kill with a shoe. Kids that don’t know who their teachers are. “I have to go to the bathroom.” Criers. Lost kids. An unexpected library visit by the special needs class. “Sit down, Mikey.” An escaping first grader. Younger siblings of previous students. “Sit down, Mikey.” Typical first day of school. I think I’ll go lie down now.
