The most horrifying thing just happened to me. I will tell you about it in the form of a scary story…tis the season and all. 

One night, a still kind of youngish pre-middle aged mom laid down to go to sleep really early (because she has the sleep needs of a preschooler). She was trying to clear her head of everything – kids, work, papers, reading, soccer, etc. This all was scary enough! But it was at that moment that she realized that exactly TEN YEARS from now, Simon would be in COLLEGE…THE HORROR! The disbelief! The agony!

[and then she cried herself to sleep]

The End.
