School, school, school....brings back a certain...nostalgia. *Sniff*
It just dawned on me today that this is my last year of high school when my manager (I work at a bookstore: it figures) asked me if I had already gotten my senior pictures made so that I could put them on the invitations to my graduation at the end of the year....and if not, she'd be happy to recommend a few photographers.
My mouth just hung open.
"What?" I finally asked when I came back to reality.
"YOU HAVEN"T GOTTEN YOUR SENIOR PICTURES TAKEN YET?????"
"I...um, um.....I....?" *Mumbles unintelligably*
"Sooks, you really gotta get that done. And you need to go to a proffesional photogographing place, too...so that you can get some pictures of you in the graduation robes they have on hand--to place in your invitation card. Oh, and have 'Class of 2008' Printed on your picture"
"...And you've got to get more than one session, too! So you can have more to choose from..."
"But I thought, I thought.....I didn't know there was this much more to it!"
"Being a senior? Yes, it's much more than senior retreat and fundraising and having a lighter homework load. Because trust me, you'll be on your toes all year."
"My toes?" *Looks down at toes in cute black ballerina slippers*
"Yes, Sookie, your toes."
"But, but, but...."
"No buts, Sookie. You need to get those pictures done soon. And restack all those books that toddler has thrown on the floor. And ask if that lady over there with the sunglasses who looks mysteriously like J.K. Rowling needs any help."
Okay, so that last part was made up a bit...Well, not the restacking part. Heath really has no respect for the wellbeing of the books. But he is only a toddler....I *suppose* I should forgive him for nearly tearing up the paperbacks section....
No J.K. Rowling sightings yet--but I'll keep on the lookout just in case she ever comes to Texas.
Anyway--back to being a senior and all that. Man I have to get cracking.....There are pictures to take, smelly robes to buy, invitations to fill out, yearbooks to sign, applications to fill out....Oh the horror! The horror! And school hasn't even started yet.
