School’s Out for Summer!
“School’s out for Summer!” Well not yet, it will be at 2:30. It is indeed the last day of school, yee-mother lov’n-haw! I woke up to the beeping of my alarm for the last time this am. It started beeping at 5:40 and I grabbed the butcher knife from under my pillow and I stabbed it. I stabbed it like my life depended on it. You shut your mouth Mr. Alarm clock.
Then I laughed..bwhahahaha. I don’t need your beeping/lip anymore! You are officially not needed around these parts for a few months. I hopped out of bed with a spring in my step and the feeling of victory!
The kids popped right out of bed this morning too, go figure. They are stoked for summer break, I can’t blame them. Do you remember the feeling of the last day of school? It was such a cool feeling, the feeling of freedom. The feeling of not having structure from day to day for 2.5 months.
I can remember my final day of school like it was yesterday, it was May 26th, 1995. The last day is always full of signing year books, chit chatting in every period, making plans for the summer. The final bell rang at 2:45 and we all headed out of the school. A few friends met me at my car, I was rocking a 1987 Cutlass Supreme at the time. I took the T-tops out and we loaded in. I just happened to have the soundtrack to Dazed and Confused in my car and popped in the cassette (that makes me sound so old!) and we jammed ‘School’s Out’ by Alice Cooper. Yep we were dorks like that but it was fitting and it was true! Dazed and Confused closed my life’s high school chapter that day. One more reason I have so much love for that movie and soundtrack.
I hope everyone Rocks their Summer!
