I’m at “that place”.

Do you know it?

It’s the tipping point of summer

when you suddenly wish school was in session.

That feeling didn’t hit last week

when we spent a full six hours cleaning a bedroom.

It should have hit then.

It was dark moment.

I think there even might have been tears when we attacked that room!

But, we survived.

I thought I’d make it the whole summer, but I was wrong.

I arrived at “that place” this morning

 when I grabbed


Yup.  That’s my pencil with chunk of old gum.

I found it in my pencil on my writing desk.

If you squint it looks like a fetal kangaroo that escaped the hatch.

It looks like a mummified cat!

It looks like something a cat got at

in the yard out back.

It’s wrong that hunk of gum on my pencil.

I find it disturbing.

Which one of my family members thinks that it’s a good idea

to shove gum on an unsuspecting pencil?

It’s the simple things that will throw you right over the edge!

Just saying’.

Yes, that place.

Do you know it?
