leaving today

time to go. not all of your friends will go with you I'm afraid, but then you've got some friends that are a bit annoying so actually that's probably a good thing that I know you don't really understand but one day when you're reflecting on the last 20 years and those significant milestones you'll think of the time you moved to middle school and actually it won't be that bad because that's where you got all those new friends that you're now going off to India with to do something ultra worthy like working for oxfam or something or the cultural ambassador to lithuania that means it was all worthwhile.

but right now, it's the assembly so you get to sing all those songs you've been practicing all month and doing some kind of maypole extravaganza in front of the massed ranks of tissue wielding 30 somethings who work from home or don't work at all and 70 somethings who have 30 somethings who remember the long hot summer of 1976 and who's that boy on the right, oh, it's a girl, you are just, and you know, so, well, oh, it's not sad but you know they grow up and, booohooohoooo, hoohoo, sniff, bwaaaaaaaahhh. sorry.
