first grade social commentary
h got off the bus today and had a little surprise in his backpack... a stack off torn-off pages from his ex-girlfriend's (yes, it was a kindergarten flame that burned hot and bright) notebook. i flipped through the pages, and this was the very last one. i laughed so hard i choked and was crying. if you don't understand the language, i'll paraphrase: "This is Annie. She's popular. She acts so mean. She's good in school. She has good report cards and has 110,000,000 dollars. I hate her."
something about it's astuteness struck me as so funny, and reminded me of the angst we feel throughout our school careers. i just don't remember it starting so EARLY! maybe kids really are growing up faster these days. say it isn't so!
