My feelings exactly

Overheard when I was stopped at a traffic light yesterday, with my window rolled down as two boys walked by me, on their way back to elementary school after getting some laffy taffys at the gas station:

8-year-old street urchin to 6-year-old street urchin: Yeah, school's a hassle, but if you wanna get a decent job, you gotta go.

The only thing better would have been for the wise old 8-year-old to say "Damn, school's a hassle..."

I think this is my new favorite blog. Ever. Why, oh, why didn't I hang out with you more in high school? I could have been that much cooler. Oh well.

This is Kiersten White, by the way. Except now my last name is Brazier. Like, rhymes with Frasier, but looks like Brassierre. Which makes my maiden name even more awesome.
