You know what happens when you spend your whole bloomin’ break eating, sleeping, reading and napping? You find yourself two days away from going back to work with a huge effing pile of homework to grade. I’ve got… let me see… 150 mid term essays, 150 final essays on the book we finished the week before break, about 150 vocab exercise papers AND 60 short answer responses from my honors class’s mid terms.

So, what should I be doing right now as a responsible, hard working teacher? Right. What am I going to do? Go upstairs, get some dinner, then return with a glass of red wine and rewrite an old short story for me to mail out. You know why?

Because there’s always tomorrow.
