rites of passage

I checked another box this week on my roster of "The Complete High School Teacher Experience" by reading Dr. Seuss's Oh, the Places You'll Go! to my graduating seniors. Even though there were a few wisecracks (Pavlo brought special attention to the bright, almost psychadelic colors, for one), for the most part they listened reverently, as I did back when Mr. Bobo read it in our last Civics class lo, these many years ago.

It was also fun to teach Seussisms. Although I don't know when's the next time Lucka will meet a howling Hakken-Krak or when Martin will play his tartinkas.

Tomorrow is the last bell for another year of graduates. More on this to come. Stay tuned.

Saw that book in Borders the other day.

That's about it for now....but i'm sure they're all thinking how fast it's all going.
