Last day?

‘Round these parts today is the last day of school before summer vacation.

Summer vacation. Ha! What a silly, 20th-century notion.

Summer camp starts tomorrow, and as I’ve noted before, what with cellphones, travel sports teams, and organized “play dates,” there’s really not much to summer vacation any more. Remember when you’d go three months without seeing people from school? Nobody under 27 does.

Well, here’s to the next phase anyway, and maybe to unplugging a bit on our phones.

I think there’s an app for that.
