"Can I do the rest of my tests now?" he asked as he turned in Day 1's booklet.

I suspect I smiled one of those 'I hear you but can't help you smiles.'

"I wish I could do that, buddy," I replied earnestly, "but tomorrow's tests are all in a big vault somewhere waiting." In two more days, we'll be back to regular school!"

"That's great," he smiled and somehow, I think he really meant it.
