I heard those 3 words this weekend, we all as kids, hated to hear this time of year.
Back to school!
Really? Are we really only two weeks away, and that for the reminder!
Yes we are in the dog days of summer.
The first clue is the CNE followed closely by corn season.
Speaking of corn season, have you noticed it’s the only time of time of year old people request the music at your local gym be turned up louder. Think about it.
Seriously ‘back to school’ has little to do with the kids and more to do with merchandising.
Keeping little Jimmy and Jane in the latest gear can get expensive. And the more you hear about it the more likely you are to cave in to the pressure of both your kids and the nonstop ads.
As a parent I’m less apprehensive about Labour Day now and more over joyed the little rug rats are heading back.
But not as over joyed as I’ll be when I can say, son drive me home, I’m tired…
I’m Scott Thompson.
