Turns out that bursting into my kid's room whilst belting out "School's out for Winter Break!" to the tune of Alice Cooper's "School's out for Summer" doesn't create the animated happy response I expected. Is it because finals just ended and exhaustion has taken over? Maybe. Is it because it's only a two week break? Possibly. Is it that my rendition is some kind of awful? The likeliest answer.
I'm good with that...because I've got two weeks off for fun with family, friends, art, writing, and doing absolutely nothing!
