The world needs ditch diggers, too.

“I believe that children are our future.”

The future is shaky at best.

And I don’t think I am talking out of my ass on this one.

There is a study group going on in Starbucks.

But, you would think that, if they had the ambition to put together the study group, these would be some good students.

Not so fast there.

Its a sloppy bunch here.

And not the sharpest tools in the shed.

I’m not just saying that to be mean.

Even though I am more than capable of being mean, even taking pleasure in it at times, I am merely observing here.

The leader seems to be a girl with bad skin and piercings.

She is scribbling in her notebook with a blue pen and black fingernails.

At the other end of the lazy spectrum is a boy with a unkempt hair and a closed book.

He is texting non-stop and seems confused by what he is reading.

This kid works in confusion the way another artist might work in clay or stone.

The other two members of the study group are goth kids.

Or maybe just come by a tragically whiny look naturally.

Either way, it just doesn’t give you that merit scholar feeling.

Makes me wonder who they’re mad at more, mom or dad.

Because they are obviously punishing someone.

The saying used to be, “Cut off your nose to spite your face.”

Now its “Pierce your lip so you can be an angst filled individual, just like everyone else.”

Spite is spite, even if it looks stupid.

I have been evesdropping for ten minutes and I have yet to figure out what they are supposedly studying.

Mainly because there is no studying going on.

Leader girl is totally lost in a systematic repositioning of some of the hardware she has stabbed into her face and head.

Trust me, sweetie, the black stud earring looks just as bad on the left as it did the right.

The Goth twins are embroiled in a seemingly typical student discussion about if a teacher of theirs was secretly gay.

Except that their outrage was that he was hiding it.

Everyone is free to be who they are, and if you feel like keeping it to yourself, thats your call.

Just for the record, this is a don’t ask, don’t tell blog.

And I have saved the best for last.

Confused boy started a phone conversation about five minutes ago and is heavily embroiled in an argument.

Based on his tone and whispering, I vote that his girlfriend is on the other end of that call.

Maybe ex girlfriend, just judging by the angry whispering.

I hate whispering, its difficult to hear.

The only reason I say they are a study group is that Leader girl proclaimed that they were when they first sat down.

Otherwise, I would have to say they are just poor students, screwing around on a Sunday at Starbucks.

Maybe they’re both.

So, like I said, future, shaky.

Got that?
