It's pretty exciting to be off for a week, isn't it? If you're a teacher, you're just as happy as the kids, and who can blame you? What are you going to do? Are you going to visit your long lost relatives? Are you going to go to Hawaii and search for the meaning of life in a pinacolada served in a coconut shell?
I certainly hope you've got an equally worthy plan. Or if you just want to sit around filing your nails and plotting revenge against your enemies, well, that's your right too. Of course, if that's how you think, you might be able to find a higher paying job at Tweed. Or maybe you could plot to take over the world with another political organization. I hope the end result is some sort of improvement.
Are you going to improve the world next week? How do you propose to achieve this?
