Today I saw a lot of my students for the last time before the summer break.  It was a hectic day.  After that, I had to stay late for one of the 50 million (that might be an exaggeration) things that go on after school at the end of each school year.  I heard from Carl on and off throughout the day since he had to work too.

I was looking forward to Sunday so much that I tried to squash my enthusiasm.  In the past, I have found that whenever I look forward to something too much, no matter how good the actual event is, it’s nowhere near as fun as I expected it to be because my hopes were too high.  I tried very hard not to daydream about what might happen or hope too fervently.

About an hour before the school event started, Carl just stopped responding to me.  I figured it wasn’t a big deal.  Maybe his phone died.  Maybe he got busy and was distracted by something.  Then I got distracted with my own school stuff.  Afterwards, it was late, so I drove home.  I sent a message to Carl wishing him a good night and went to sleep.
