Truancy: the Next Generation

While shopping for fromage-intensive entertainments at my local used video store, I overheard the following conversation between two grubby teenagers.

Grubby Teen #1: "Hey, check out the movie I just bought! Let's skip school tomorrow and watch it!"

Grubby Teen #2: "Tomorrow's Saturday. We don't have school."

Grubby Teen #1: "Oh."


Grubby Teen #1: "Let's skip school on Monday and watch it!"

Children are our future. Be afraid.

That made me laugh (despite my highly ironic day).

Geez, you did have an ironic day (just read your blog). I hope the laughter helped.

I'm sorry I didn't respond to your message on Saturday. I lost my voice on Friday night (like, completely), and the dog ate my glasses on Saturday, so I've been a pair of earplugs away from being Helen Keller. I'll call you tomorrow. In the meantime, Happy Yuletide!
