She woke me up at 7:22 - frantic and wild eyed. I was no better. Thankfully, we live around the corner from the high school and she was able to be there by 7:26. Without a calculator and tears in her eyes. She knew there would be calculators she could borrow, but still. That's no way to start the day. I loathe these tests. AND, she's taking chemistry, a subject I bypassed altogether. I don't love tests. I understand the purpose of them, but I know many a brilliant person who tanked a lot of tests and have gone on to greatness. They do not measure the human. Freaking, fracking, stupid tests.
As I dropped her off, in the car right behind me was Cindi, dropping off her daughter. She's the woman whose job I am taking over. We pulled over (I didn't breathe on her - no time to brush my teeth or hair or make coffee...) to say a quick hello. She was checking in to make sure I was OK after Saturday's money mix-up. She reminded me that it takes six months to really understand a job. She reminded me that she too makes errors. I let her know that I had heard from the other two women as well. Do you see why I love this job?!
Here's to the final final. May the summer officially begin and may there soon be sand between our toes and All-American in our hands. (That's a Long Island reference.)
Have a fabulous day everyone ~ I hope yours started out a little less stressful.
