    Years and years after graduating from 4th grade with honors... I still hate the transition from Summer to Fall.....

    Anyone else still get flash backs at the Back To School section at Target or where ever you shop?

    YES! The worst is when Jerry Lewis still had that telethon. That's how I always associate back to school is that telethon.

    we would get a back to hair cut from our mother
    she had no training or talent for the job

    if you also suffered this great injustice at the hands of your mother then you know that shit will scar you

    a few years the neighbors dad would have all the neighborhood boys in line for their turn to sit on this big upright barrel and it was free crewcuts for all, then he moved and my pops took over.
    my mom was always there with the comment, don't you look snazzy in your new school clothes.....:D

    Once the leaves started coming off the trees there was that particular "smell of school" in the air, that made me sick to my stomach.....and school smelled like the gym and luncheon meat
    To this day I can conjure up thoughts of nausea just thinking about mid-september....but then I remembered that's where the boys were.....

    I agree, I hate back to school. Now in my 40's, the last week in August up to Labor Day feels like Sunday evening, getting ready to go to work the next day. Fuck that shit, I hate that feeling (I also hate that stupid Jerry Lewis telethon.

    I remember September 1986 on the way to 9th grade on the bus, there was a kid in the back of the bus with a ghetto blaster playing:

    The end of Summer is like a funeral around my house. Last year when I was closing the pool my daughter came out and played taps on the trumpet. She thought it was funny. I did not.

    Fuck Fall. REALLY fuck Winter. Me and Spring are aight.

    Fuck yeah, my brother and I still cry about some old lady shopkeeper asking us if we were sisters. (we were 8 and 10)

    We were like two Rudy Gerners (Meatballs movie) except grubbier with more fucked up hair cuts but without the charm.

    It was ten years later when we were college football studs before either of us had the self esteem to bring ourselves to talk about that emotionally devastating day.

    I always equated Labour Day with The Jerry Lewis Telethon, trying to organizing my new school books and clothes all while nursing a wicked hangover from the night before end of summer parking lot drinking sesh with my friends. Started hitting the bottle around 13 and wrapped it up around 26. I'm 32 and my liver is still in recovery. Anybody else start early?
