Last Day Of School
My daughter asked me last night: "Daddy, do you get the summer off, too?"
Heh, heh, heh. "No, dear - Daddy has to work, every day, getting up early and driving all the way across town all by myself every morning this summer, while you guys sleep late and play and goof off."
"But Daddy, why can't you be out, too, to spend time with your family?"
"Because I'm out of school, and I've got a real job."
My wife, the teacher, didn't like that answer. I don't know why.
