“I’m ready for school. Honey you are ready for the prom.”-Danny Tanner
Since I was a young girl I’ve always had the back to school jitters. At twenty nine the sentiment still applies. Back to school shopping symbolizes the end of summer. It is a tough loss. Can I still wear white pants to class even though it’s after Labor Day? What will I wear? Will people like me? I seemed to have forgotten how to cut in a straight line this summer. Maybe I never mastered it. I’m dead meat. I received this email from one of my professors last week:
“ On the first session I ask you to bring an “About me Bag.” Tell us your story and put the objects in a brown lunch bag. Also be sure to bring the following to class.”
Scotch magic tape
This looks a lot like my old grade school list. And I’ve also been asked to bring a bag lunch to night class. Is this “About me Bag” a more adult way of saying “ Show and Tell?” Is this ” Materials” list a more adult way of saying ” School Supplies.” Well let’s see.
