River of Stones: 1-20-11

In the long carpool line wait, the mother observes many things.  Glad to see the sun, she tosses her jacket and rolls down the windows.  A little later, clouds appear out of nowhere like a stampede of wild hogs.  She puts the jacket back on and rolls up the windows.  Before long, the restless mom watches through the rain as other parents pull up at the last minute and park illegally.  She wonders why their time is so valuable.

Ah, yes...I remember those days and the parents whose sense of entitlement ruled their actions. In the end I learned they were often in a hurry to find their true selves.

Very true, Kim. I can also see why so many kids misbehave in school. If their parents don't have to follow the rules, why should they?
