At lunch I called my sister just to see how she was doing and what she told me just baffled me ….
“The boys are coming home early”
“Why? do they have half day?”
“Because it’s too hot”
“Are you telling me that school is cancelled because it’s too hot?”
“Yes….and they better not wake up the kids that are napping” (she runs a daycare)
“OK..hold up….so we grew up in the desert where it reached 115 degrees in the summer but still had to go to school and sometimes even WALK HOME…..but it’s not even 100 where you are and they are cancelling school?”
For some reason her frustration was now mine…….and honestly, I was silently saying “that’s not fair!!” apparently the older schools don’t have air conditioning and apparently the State of Illinois has never seen a heat wave…..I call Bull Shit!!!
“Heat wave” by big German/Mexican ass , I remember going to school when it was over 100 degrees, the classrooms didn’t have air conditioning either but the teachers used what’s called a fan to bring some relief to the stuffy room all the while I sat there wishing the students around me believed in wearing deodorant.
I foresee wine and maybe a Xanex in my sisters future!!!
