Today, I missed High School


Today is the Friday before Spring Break for many high school and college students. As I continue to be inundated with invitations and reminders that my 10-year high school reunion is next year, I couldn’t help but think about going to Mayde Creek High the Friday before Spring Break knowing it was going to be the best day all year.


You see, all the teachers, students, and administration were ready for Spring Break, so Friday meant watching Braveheart in the English class where we listened to books on tape instead of read them, playing gym baseball instead of workout in basketball class and playing The Game of Life in Economics to learn finance.


So when daylight savings time kicks in and wakes me up to pitch dark, 50 degree, and rainy weather with a cold, I miss the Friday before Spring Break as a mighty Mayde Creek Ram.
