As I have been watching the news lately, or really the commercials in between the non-news (Carmaggedon anyone? What a waste of newscaster breath!), I have started noticing all the commercials for the back to school shopping for the "fall" clothes. Now, I don't know about you, but I have never started school in the fall. When I was a kid, we started the day after Labor Day, but it's still summer fora good 6+ weeks after that. And in college, we started at the end of August!
Everything I see for back to school touts the "fall" thing. Well, I will have been in school for 6 weeks when the first official day of fall comes, and even then, chances are it will be over 100* on that day. And if it isn't, it will be in the 90's. We don't have fall, and I am sure many others of you are in the same boat. Fall is just a word used to describe the weather and seasons on the East coast and the midwest. I want to think of another word to describe the back to school shopping frenzy that has nothing to do with fall...Schoolmaggedon? Sorry, my newscasters has warped my brain!
