Sometimes, You Get What You Need

Recently overheard chez Granola:

Curious Girl: "I don't want to go to school tomorrow because I'm sick, and New Classmate Who Doesn't Speak a Lot of English Yet will want to kiss me becuase she always kisses me, and I don't want to make her sick. Teacher will say "no, no" but New Classmate won't understand."

Politica: "Well, if you're sick, don't breathe on me because I don't want to get sick."

Curious Girl: "But Mama will take care of us!"


Curious Girl, walking down the hall, singing: "You can't always get what you want. You can't always get what you need. But if you try sometime you can't always get what you want. This is so catchy! It's catchy!"


It's the end of the semester and the middle of Hanukkah. May all the latkes be yummy and the celebrations happy, for those who are celebrating. For all us academics, may the distance between now and final grades somehow be covered quickly.
