I've got faculty meetings tonight. Classes start next week. I can't put it off any longer. Back-to-School is creeping up on me, nudging summer off the high dive and into the deep end of the swimming pool. The backpacks are already being yanked off the store shelves to make room for Halloween costumes. Is it really time to put away the popsicles and take out the pencils? When did you go back to school when you were a child? September, sometime after Labor Day, right? The apples aren't even at their peak until September; do kids these days leave their teachers an ear of corn on the cob? And yet...the weather is on my side of the argument. Yesterday it was screaming summer at 104 degrees. Ha-there's still time to get a few more of your summer favorites in before you surrender to pumpkin pie.
