The first day of school...

An excerpt:

     Unless you're somebody like Huckleberry Finn, the first day of school isn't too bad.  Most kids, by then, are bored with summer and itchy from mosquito bites and poison ivy and nothing to do.  Your sneakers are all worn out and you can't get new ones till school starts and your mother is sick and tired of yelling at you to pick up things and you're sick and tired of picking the same things up.

Me, I always liked the first day of school.  I loved having new supplies and new clothes, meeting my teachers, and seeing all my friends and classmates again after a long summer.  How about you?  Were you/are you eager for the first day?  Glad to have something to do?  Or are you more like Huck Finn, wanting nothing to do with school?
