There Was A Time...
A time where we watched the clock.
We waited for that damn bell to ring.
There was a time where we sat together.
For some of us, we sat together for 13 years.
We played together and maybe even fell off the merry-go-round together...
We learned fantastic things...
Like how to read and write.
And not so fantastic things...
Like how animals don't go to heaven (at least not our heaven, don't let your kiddos read that).
We became friends...
Laughed, cried, fought..fell in love.
We grew up and maybe...grew apart.
Then what some called "The Real World" happened.
In no particular order:
Little piece of land
The broke student
The lottery winer...no? None of those? Yet...
The third shift
The night I don't remember
That bad tattoo
Third floor apartment
Broke adult...with a very expensive piece of paper
Each of us has taken a unique path over the past 11 years.
Let us come together and celebrate surviving it.
Let us remember where we came from,
Who we grew up with...
And the faces that shaped our childhood.
