Hello, my cool cucumbers. How are you? You better get in your summer fun while you can. In just another week, it will be September. Oh dear. School has already started in many places. Can advertising for Halloween be far behind? I expect to see Christmas ads soon, too. Really, fall is one of my favorite seasons. It’s just that my least favorite season follows it. That’s what I get for always looking into the future.
Junior is finally back in school and it’s a blessing, the peace and quiet around the house. It seems that I can get so much more done when he’s not around. I guess you could call him “high maintenance,” just like his father. It’s easier to think and prioritize and implement when someone isn’t shouting for your attention all of the time. I love him dearly, I do, but I’m so thankful for the school day. Then the likes of our beloved Ms. kk get to supervise the not-so-little dear.
There are times when I’ve toyed with the idea of returning to school myself. I have my Masters in Psychic Phenomena, but I think it couldn’t hurt to get my PhD. “Doctor Zoltar” has such a nice ring to it. If I had stayed in school and taught, I would have been tenured by now, pulling down over 100K annually. But no, I had to answer the call of the wild and that two-bit, toll booth Lothario. I gave him the best years of my life, and in return I received Junior and a stack of bills. Humph!
The important point, though, is that education is vital. If you’re in school, stay there. If you’ve dropped out, drop back in. Education gives us the tools we need to work and build and interact with our world. And you’re never too old to learn. Keep your mind open and alert to new things, new ideas. Read, inquire, ask, learn. Go back to school and get new skills. Go back to school and get a new you. That’s the best advice that Madame Zoltar can give you.
The second best advice I can give you is to wash your hands often and always wear clean underwear. The third is, love your fellow Irregulars. I do. And I thank you for reading my blog today. I appreciate you spending your time with me. Bless you.
