hooray … or something

They’re young. They’re good-looking. They’re noisy. Incredibly noisy, in fact. They own the streets or at least pretend they do. They’re celebrating. Did they pass any particular exam? Nope, those were abandoned decades ago. They’re celebrating that school’s out. In fact school’s out every year but now they’re done with the mandatory part. Ehm, well most kids celebrating were done with their mandatory studies two or three years earlier. Ok, so maybe they’re celebrating that they won’t be studying any more? Probably not - many will be heading directly to the University. So what’s the noise about really? I’m definitely getting old. Let’s just say it’s summer.

Oh that terrible noise, that awful thing of high school-degree festivities, that makes me think I must have been born old, ie wise and sensible, since I thought it was just plain silly and stupid even before I got my own high school diploma. Which must have been sometime back in the Stone Ages...:)

I always figured I was the only one who was born old. Apparently we’re soul mates in this matter… ;)

Ah, I do now a few people who thinks just that, they just don't want to admit to it until I sort of grump about it:)

We could have a club: "grumpy old youngsters" or something similar... :)

Ha, ha, just what I thought of when I'd already hit the publish-button:) - excellent idea, it has a certain fresh and youthful ring to it!

last chance...
