So long sammie (and hello summer)

Today was my last egg sammie for the school year. To make it one to remember, I went to the Dominican place (Las Vegas) across the street. They have great lunches, and I assumed their breakfast would be just as good. I also knew that this place wasn't going to play games with any of that milk-in-the-half-and-half basura that the Kitchen Door tries. The sandwich was the size of a cubano, but I didn't argue. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

DW met me at home today after school and we sat and talked about school being over. She and I are both employees of the Region, which is being dissolved (and rebuilt as something else, of course). Technically, we're all excessed until the new organization staffs itself. Our teams are disbanding, each teacher going back to a school or hoping for a district position. DW is hoping to go back into the classroom while I am hoping to work at the district level. We are both excessed to our last in-school position -- the school in the Bronx where we met.

DW: I am really kinda sad. That's the last time I'll see some of them.

Me: I know what you mean. I feel that way too.

DW: It will be weird not seeing them.

Me: I only wish I had gotten their plantain lasagna when I had the chance.

DW: [empty stare, pause.] You're ridiculous.

We're going to see "The Kingdom" this evening, though the thunder outside might keep us tucked in our bedsheets. It's a free movie screening, which I keep promising to write about. Speaking of movies, we just finished Dreamgirls (not as bad as I thought it would be) and have BBC Planet Earth at the ready. We watched about 5 minutes last night before bed, and it looks awesome. I can't wait.

June 21st is a myth. Summer is finally here.
