The first day of school

Today is the first day of school around here. The neighborhood is blissfully quiet. I feel bad for the kids, though. Maybe they like school. I liked school. But I hated, absolutely hated the first day of school. Maybe even more than I hate my birthdays now that I’ve been out of school for awhile. Yeah, definitely more.

I’m not sure why, since I did like school.

I just hated the first day.
