It’s merely that spring will be a little late this year

It seems that all too often around the school I have heard the word “tumor“. Today was at least the third time I have had to hear it. Not to be crass or cold, it’s a lot easier to hear tumor when it is about an adult. Adults are supposed to be the ones that get sick easier, adults are the ones that deal with these things. Only all of these “tumors” have nothing to do with adults. Two mentions of the word this week. Today’s almost knocked me over–one of my favorite kids.All shades of cruel.
