Locker Room Talk

This morning we had a bigger class than usual at my taekwondo school. The area public schools are on break this week, so we had some kids at what is sometimes known as the Fart Class because morning students tend to be middle aged people who are on flexible work schedules, leaving the evening classes to the younger students who have less control over their lives.

It's good to be old!

Anyway, after class I was in the locker room with one of my favorite teenage black belts. We were talking about her honors English class, and I, of course, asked what she'd been reading for it. Among other things, her class read Briar Rose by Jane Yolen. In doing a little Internet snooping about the book, I found that it was originally published as adult fiction. I had no idea.

This is the second time in a little over twenty-four hours that I've posted about Jane. I hope I'm not becoming obsessed with her again.
