An In-Between Age, Yet Still Eager for a Snow Day

by Megan Langley

I find it slightly comical—
These facebook status updates—
Half of them (teachers like me)
Pleading for a snow day
In optimistic anticipation of a day away from work
Or those craving the cancellation of college courses,
Hoping the weatherman finally got it right;
The others simply requesting
That school is still is session
For the sake of no daycare
For their school-aged children.

I've come to the disappointing realization
That I've reached that awkward stage,
That in-between age,
When snow days gradually become less,
And less, of a sought-after occurrence.
