Back to School Written on May 6, 2013, by .

Growing up, I missed out on a lot of those traumatizing childhood experiences charitably described as “character-building.” Never broke a limb, never had braces, never broke a limb while struggling to detach my braces from the braces of my first kiss. Never saw Mac and Me.

And I never had to ride the school bus. So my entire understanding of how they operate is as follows: A) their wheels go round and round, and B) they are fueled by the ear-abusing shrieks of their delinquent passengers.

Little wonder, then, that when I got the assignment for The Normal School‘s Spring issue with the co-themes of “cutting class” and “4-H club,” the first thing that came to mind was a bus stocked with clamorous farm animals. It’s pure coincidence that both school kids and barnyard animals are ecstatic Beliebers.

The issue’s on newsstands now, so if you like quality literature and goats, snatch this up ASAP!

    Mac and Me is HILARIOUSLY awful. At least, I thought it was when I watched it at age 12 or 13 and laughed my face off.

    Who DOESN’T like goats and quality literature? and how did you escape the indignity of riding the school bus?

    My mom always picked me up, even though school was literally a block and a half away. Think she was afraid I’d be abducted or something. MOMS.
