First day, after the fire..
My son, David went back to school today. 9 days after his high school burnt down. I could feel the fridge sigh in relief.He is a growing boy, and boy he contributes to my growing grocery bills.
Dave was very nervous about going to a new school.Even though he was going there with all his classmates. I had done my best to reassure him,well at least I hoped I had. He did smile when I pointed out that most 13 year old boys are really short and spotty. Dave is tall and only has a few pimples.
All in all I don't think it was too bad of a day. He didn't get into any fights. The grade 10 boys that were acting like Neanderthals towards the new boys, didn't do any damage. It reminded me of one of those nature docos with the monkeys with the bright red bums. All these teenagers competing for territory in the playground. When, what all the males were doing really, was nothing more than banging their chests and baring their teeth, and hopefully not showing off their shiny red bums... hehehe.
David did say the girls were nice . Typically though his most lavish praise was reserved for the canteen. Apparently the food was Awesome!!! Yay!!!
