Seventh Grade Redo

I had been here before, a long time ago. I could do it again.

The faces are different, but my friends are all here:

My best friend with her maniacal sense of humor that masks a painful home life.

There’s the boy who makes me laugh. I don’t know what goes on behind his walls.

There’s the bully, the girl with no boundaries, the smart kid, the jock, the girls who whisper about other girls, the druggies, the politician.

I’m not as confident as I was the first time I was twelve. The blind faith in my future is diminished with the real knowledge of life as an adult.

Mad World is playing in the distance…

I survive this day as I’ve survived everyday before, by desperately searching for the humor-

So, did you all come in the same car? Are you having fun? Well, why don’t you tell your face. This is funny stuff here. Don’t forget to tip your waitress. I’m here all week.
