I start my new job the Monday after summer vacation starts. I'm starting to get really nervous about teaching kids to skateboard. Just because it's something I can do doesn't mean that it's something I can teach, does it? Still, I'm going to shadow another instructor for two days before I'm left alone with the kids. It didn't really occur to me right away, but there's a serious babysitting element to this gig. I hope I don't do something stupid, like swear in front of the kids or something. That would get me in serious trouble.
Vanessa isn't trying to get a job this summer (I guess her allowance is bigger than mine) so she's kind of annoyed that I'm going to be working all the time. Whatever. She can't seriously expect me to turn down a job this good. She can be totally needy sometimes. Shhh... don't tell her I said that!
A bunch of kids are trying to organize an end of year prank at the school, but haven't come up with any ideas that are totally stupid (or totally illegal) yet, so Ben and I have been brainstorming... we're sort of at a loss. Do you have and let me know.
