Journal Entry 1 by wingCordelia-annewing from Atlanta, Georgia USA on Sunday, November 28, 2021
Always, I thought it disappointing to return to school after the Thanksgiving holiday. The only thing that kept me going was singing in the choir where I so enjoyed all of the Christmas music. This particular book is at least ten years old. It came from one of the former Borders Book Stores in the Atlanta area. I found a bookmark inside for Borders story time at an Atlanta area store. The last Borders Store closed in July of 2011. The company pioneered digital book cataloging and had a wonderful, entertaining and distinguished run from 1971-2011, forty glorious years!

The editor Bruce Lansky's Poem, Page 34:

I have a brief confession
that I would like to make.
If I dont get it off my chest
I'm sure my heart will break.

I didn't do my reading.
I watched TV instead—
while munching cookies, cakes, and chips
and cinnamon raisin bread.

I didn't wash the dishes.
I didn't clean the mess.
Now there are roaches eating crumbs—
a million, more or less.

I didn't turn the TV off.
I didn't shut the light.
Just think of all the energy
I wasted through the night.

I feel so very guilty.
I did a lousy job.
I hope my students don't find out
that I am such a slob.

I guess the teacher lightened his work with humor.
