Back to School

You know how the first day of school smells differently than any other day? What is that? Is it the scent of over-ripened summer? The perfume of burgeoning opportunity?

I think it's a combination of waking up way earlier than you usually do and breathing in the post-dawn air (before it's sullied by rush hour commute traffic and roasted by sunlight) . . .

. . . and office supplies. Mass quantities of office supplies. Paper. Glue. Plastic packaging.

That's it.
