44. Ditched

Another day attempting to tutor at the DOME, another disappointment. My little guy didn’t show tonight, this time because his buddy and escort was celebrating his acceptance into high school.

Middle schoolers in New York must apply for high school, with ostensible benefit for the kids who put forth an effort. Given the cutthroat nature of school admissions beginning at the age of 2, it struck me as eminently acceptable to skip tutoring for something as far removed from academics as possible, like tagging the neighborhood garden or something of the sort.
