Second Grade

Some kids are back in school, some aren't depending on where they live.  How sad they look.  I looked like that on my way to school.  No school bus. I got a bicycle at some point.  When I was little I used to get so worried about school I'd throw up.  Of course that prompted my father to relentlessly tease me or do anything to up the pressure.

One day I went off to a little creek about a mile from out house.  I never went to school that day.  Mostly sat around and caught crawdads.  It wasn't much fun.  But I'd brought my lunch.  Went home at the usual time.  Figured I'd get in trouble.  Nobody ever seemed to notice.  Felt better about school after that.
