I settle back into the warmth of the comforter for a 10 minute snooze.
A call this early can only be one of two things;
'Bless my Soul'...a Snow Day!
A snow day?
"Hi Mychelle, no school today because of the snow. Bye."
We just had one a few weeks ago.
It wasn't snowing when I went to bed...or was it?
I had been up late revising lesson plans.
There was that pale light seeping through the blinds of my darkened room.
I move toward the window and twist the wand to open the blinds.
Light flows in.
I pull the cord to raise them.
Well, well, well...
My cell phone hisses a text,
She has taken on my father's honored roll.
She is now the breaker of Snow Day news.
To a colleague,
"Good lookin' out with that snow dance,"
I jokingly text.
And then it hit me.
I spent a lot of time on those lesson plans.
I'll have to push the math test back another day.
Some folks are never satisfied.
