The virtue of windows

My son was helping me fill out a questionnaire from his school, answering questions about how satisfied we are with the teachers, facilities, curriculum, etc. At the end, I could leave comments about what we liked most about his school. I said, “Safety, and windows.” Ben found “windows” just hilarious. I explained that, no matter what, there will always be boring teachers and classes, and then you need to have windows so you can look out and daydream. Well, the next day, Ben sidled up to me conspiratorially and said, “I found out how great windows are.”

    in my school, odd numbered years (1,3,5th grade) were best because the windows looked out on Danbury Rd. Even years were consistantly dull because the windows looked to the back of the school. We’ll discuss the trip-color pen technique in detail someday. But don’t get too excited: it’s not much.
