Miss May Part 2
This morning, May told me she is retiring on January 6! She will have ten years put in on January 5 but wants to finish that week of school. She says she needs to be home with her husband and that she's worked long enough. What will I do? I asked her what if the new person doesn't hold my bus for me because I'm a grownup, but she promises that all the guard staff are wonderful. I don't know. I feel unsure. I've gotten so used to a crossing guard I may not remember how to look both ways. I think I'll take her some cocoa in the afternoon on her last day and we'll celebrate.
