Is.’s school put on an MLK Jr. concert on Friday afternoon. I hadn’t planned to video-record it, but when I learned her class was doing just one song, I captured it with the smartphone. If the circle is a clock face and the teacher is in the 6 o’clock position, Is. is in a light blue dress around 1 o’clock.
Afterward, I caught a meeting/collaborative writing session at which I heard about others’ Friday the 13th woes and left feeling fortunate.
Fortunate, that is, until I got to Is.’s school again to pick her up and scored a flat tire in the school parking lot. Approaching dusk. Steady snow. Due to D.’s school in fifteen minutes. Happy Friday the 13th to you, too. Wind and the rain, in his hands….
