at the Dollar Store, at the Walmart; "Dying Queen's New Agony", and "What it takes to be Kim Kardashian" the tabloids scream at the check-out line...Swarms of whiny little voices all so serious about the notebooks, the glueStix, the shiny feathered pens, the crayons, the color pencils...Serious little hands clutch xeroxed supply lists: 4, 2" binders, 8 notebooks (one Subject) must be 2 red, 2 blue, 2 green, and 2 purple...looseleaf paper 2 paks, crayons 20 color set, one protractor, post-it notes pr as the younglings call 'em "Sticky Notes" (Teachers require sticky notes to use in "Common Core" reading activities: in real life kidz want sticky notes for "Kick Me" signs to stick on friends' backs). Pencil Case, Hand Sanitizer (cuz bacteria is icky and must be eradicated at any cost). Serious Moms; "No put down the Smurfs II: Revenge of the Sith
