It is always vaguely reminiscent of arguing with a teenager. “So and so did this or got away with that, so I should be able to also.”

Ha ha ha. Oh, yeah. I'm familiar with that. Where we were in Illinois I believe kindergarten was optional also. I still remember that particular morning in January trying to lie as flat as I could under my covers, thinking that if I counted to 100 as many times as I could, I would go undetected and not get sent to school, and it appeared to have worked, but I was just getting liberated for the rest of the year.

That is a very cute story. I don’t think that kindergarten was optional in Washington State where my wife and I grew up, but I don’t know for sure. I am one of those strange kids that loved going to school. We lived on a small farm so until I started going to school I didn’t have a lot of other kids to play with. My mom worked so I enjoyed the attention I got from the teachers and I also loved school lunches.
