And in this nightmare in particular, I was a good two hours late. In the dream, I awoke in a panic with the thought, "I didn't even call!"
That day I did got to work without a second to spare. I arrived just as the secretary pulled my time card. Whoops! She gave it back though. And in my haste, I locked my bike to the school gate and in the afternoon, part of my beautiful kickstand on my beautiful, new bike was missing. Yup, I do teach middle school.
