It's not often I wish to be in high school again, but...

My morning "routine" involves turning on news radio while I'm still in bed and hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock repeatedly while listening to the headlines and the weather. This morning I heard that my high school is closed for a snow day, and for one brief moment I was overcome with joy, all my tension and crankiness washed away, and I thought of all the things I would accomplish in the afternoon as I drifted back to sleep.

Then the alarm rang again and I remembered that I've been out of high school for ten years, I was already late for work, and I hate everybody.
