It’s time to order yearbooks! Even though they’re ridiculously expensive, your kid isn’t even a senior and they’re the 15th thing the school has asked you to buy in the past week – they are mandatory. How else will your family be able to treasure all those special, special moments from this school year?
I propose there may be other reasons to buy the yearbook.
Because I didn’t realize it til this week, but they are excellent sources of parental information and sometimes – comedy. Of course you can eyeball what all your kid’s classmates look like – but you can also get a read on what the hell is going on in that school.
Example: See the gentleman to the left? NOT DATING MY DAUGHTER.
Some of the examples are really funny, some are pathetic and some make it clear that as a culture we are indeed in the hand basket, headed to hell. If you want to see the full set, click over to HappyPlace.com – they’re worth checking out.
