In less than one hour I will leave to get J from preschool.
I will pick up the mail on the way.
In the mail will be an envelope.
In the envelope will be a letter.
In the letter will be the information about kindergarten 2009.
That information will tell me if I’ve officially sold my soul to the devil for full-day. My receipt, if you will. Nasty return policy.
If he’s in full-day, you’ll hear my yelps of glee.
If he’s not in full-day, you’ll hear my scramble for supplemental education.
For, you see, 140 kids registered for kindergarten for this fall.
That is not a typo. One hundred forty kids. One-four-zero.
Half applied for full-day kindergarten.
There is one full-day class of 24.
If he got in, I’m buying a lottery ticket tonight.
