What Sarah Said at Lunch December 27, 2008

Posted by markgeil in Family.

Last day of school, first semester, freshman year of high school. That means first experience with final exams. Final exams were a major stressor for me when I was in high school, and Sarah Kate is no different. One little perk was leaving school early on that last day, after a morning of finals in Government and Biology. I was home on that last day, and Amy and I decided to give Sarah a treat by taking her and a friend out to lunch.

We sat down at our table, and our friend asked Sarah how she was doing. Sarah took a breath and said, “I’m okay. I’m still decomposing.”

She meant “decompressing”, of course. Maybe the biology final was too fresh in her head. Fortunately she did decompress, and she is fully intact with no observable decomposition. Here’s to that refreshing feeling you earn when you’ve worked and worked and at last the work is done.
