A Holiday Today?

Updated on February 20, 2012

A Holiday Today?


I got up at my usual time today.

I had my morning coffee

As I was checking my email.

I didn't think that today was any different.


I met with my neighbor for coffee

And helped her with her English.

Then I helped her improve her writing a little bit.

We chatted and then she left.


I got ready,

Made my lunch

Had my tea and some snacks.

I was all ready to go.


Suddenly I get a text,

"Do you want a day off today?"

I texted back, "If (my student) wants a day off, then that's fine."

I was asked to find out from the other student and his family.


They also decided to have me not come.

I said, "Okay, have a great evening!"

Then I text-ed the person back,

"They want a day off too, so maybe I will see you tomorrow?"

The text read, "Alright, that's fine. Have fun!"


Now what?

I have a whole evening off to myself.

What will I do?

Maybe I will catch up on some reading

Or write a little more.

It's great that I get to relax!
