So, the world is going to end in a few days now...if you believe in all that. Let's just say though, that it IS indeed the day the world ends and we're all so ready to believe that it is NOT true, that we all go about our regular business. What then, will YOU be doing? For me, I'll leave home at approximately 6:55 in the morning to get to work in time for my 8am class. Before I leave, JUST IN CASE, mind you, I'll give my husband and son an extra tight squeeze.
Because it is the last day of school before the break, a colleague and I are going to show a movie, “It's a Wonderful Life”, so if it IS the end of the world, at least we'll all go out with positive feelings. At 10 am when class is over, I'll go down to the salle de prof and say goodbye to friends. I'm not saying goodbye because I don't think I'll ever see them again, I'm saying goodbye because, well, on Fridays, I finish at 10am.
From school, I'll probably head straight home and will do a load of laundry or two in anticipation of packing. Where we're going, I'm sure we'll need a few different outfits, and where we're going is NOT to some otherworldly place, unless of course, you consider Nancy, France one of them. I'll probably grade some essays if I don't have them corrected by then (I hate having them hang over my head during a vacation but if it IS the end of the world, I'll be quite peeved that I spent time on them) and maybe catch up on an episode or two of some TV show before I go and pick up my son.
Once my son is home with me, it's only an hour or so before the husband gets home too. THEN, if anything WERE to happen, well, so be it. I'm with those I love.
And I'm pretty sure I'll be with them on Saturday morning too.
