Yippy Skippy!

I rarely look at the school calendar because my reaction is usually something like, “We’ve got how much longer?!” Besides, I work seven days a week anyway, so a calendar is virtually pointless.

I did happen to get a gander at a copy this morning, as I was using it to wipe up some coffee I had spilled. Before that caffeine brown commandeered the sheet, I noticed that today was designated as Senior Skip Day—on an official school calendar.
Now, whom should I be more disgusted with in this situation?

Should it be the school for endorsing kids not coming to school? I mean, I thought we were to stand for education. That students are expected to come to school so they can learn. I mean, time is already lost on pictures, yearbooks, senior rings; now they just encourage them not to come at all.

Perhaps I should be more upset with how lame this generation of students is being. Senior Skip Day used to be a rite of passage via an act of defiance. I hate to break it to you guys, but you’re not rebelling when the school coordinates the thing. I shouldn’t be surprised, though. I mean, I am talking about a bunch of kids who spend hours playing the video game Guitar Hero, instead of, oh, I don’t know—playing a real guitar! And don’t even get me started on the whole virtual pet thing either.

I’m sure things will get worse too. Give it a few years, and you’ll be reading my rant on Freshman Skip Day.
