Semester Break


My wife is telling me that because Northwood finals are over today — Thursday — the boy now has a four-day weekend.

“You’ve got to be kidding,” I say. It kind of makes sense to have Friday off, but why Monday?

“It’s semester break,” the boy says.

“Semester break?!

“That’s right. It’s like the off season.”

The off season . . . it’s so ridiculous I have to laugh.

“Isn’t it nice you have a funny family?” my wife says.

“It’s like the all-star break,” the boy says.
