Not So Bad

"Don't worry, Dude, we're off on Friday! Teacher workday!" I overheard one student telling another this morning as his pal complained about being tired.

I could almost understand where the second guy was coming from. After winter break and two long weekends in a row, even on a Tuesday, the thought of a full, five day week seemed a bit onerous: the breaks are welcome, but the transition back to work can be a challenge.

Still, it's my job to correct misconceptions. "That's not until next Friday," I informed them.

They slumped in their seats, deflated, but a second later? They were chattering excitedly about the illustrated timeline they were collaborating on.
