The Last Ride - Hiatus #8

Here we are at Friday again.  I'm not limping anymore.  I'm solidifying relationships, celebrating accomplishments, hugging (which I don't enjoy that much, to tell the truth), and planning for next year.  Yesterday, I gave an impassioned speech to my D period class about how we should have year-round school.  Some of them stopped giving me the stink eye when I mentioned a month-long break in June.  

"Hmmm," said Dane.

"No summer back-slide!" I said, flailing my arms.

"I'm not sure," said Dane.

"Look," I said.  "Can you promise me you'll read a book per week this summer?  If you can promise that, we don't have to have year-round school."

For two seconds, I think poor little Dane might have imagined that I actually have the power to make him sit in Room 111 on June 4th.  I don't, Dane.  I don't.
