What’s ironic today?
Well, I was thinking about the date: tomorrow is September 1.
And in the Czech Republic, where I lived for many years, and in Estonia, where I am now, and probably in many other countries around Europe and the world, September 1 is the first day of school.
And I didn’t like school!
5th grade through 7th grade… those were ok years.
But high school was just the worst!
I thought most of my subjects were a waste of time.
I thought most of my teachers were boring.
And I thought most of my classmates belonged in a zoo.
And now I’m a teacher – ha!
Alanis Morrisset sang “…rain on your wedding day… Isn’t it ironic…”
Actually, that’s just bad luck.
(And bad English.)
See the difference?
