my first day of school

Okay, I have been depressed over my homebound state long enough. Last Thursday, I decided to embrace sloth-hood. I tok my pain pill, decided against showering that day & lay on the couch guilt-free, watching old ER re-runs.

The phone rings...
"Hello"

It is my NEW principal.
"Why arent' you here?"

"Because I'm here"

"you didn't get my letter?"

"What letter?"

"We are having a special education meeting,but I guess we can fill you in later"

"oh,no, give me 15 minutes & I will be there!"

So, with hair fluffed with instant spray & a long dress to hide my hairy legs,perfume to cover my unshowered funk & my brain slightly more fogged than usual, I stagger in 20 minutes late to make my first impression on the new staff.

my principal introduced me & said I was recovering from surgery.

I dont' know where she got that from. I had mentioned I was having back problems & I guess I looked rough enough she extrapolated from there.

I didn't disabuse anyone of that notion.

I even felt kinda post-op.

Everyone was nice.

Even with the inauspicious beginning,I think I'll like it there!

Hey,stuff happens...so does joy...no stress here!

Ain't it funny how life always seems to throw us little curve balls just when we least expect it? It does keep life interesting.
