Retirement! Escape! C’est fin!
Posted on December 18, 2015
Today, I’ve left teaching for good.
Yes, not a false dawn, an empty threat.
No one will tempt me back. It’s finished. Over. Dead to me.
After Christmas, glutenfreeself is retired from the classroom, perhaps a bit prematurely at 50, but it’s time to wave my bat and walk back to the pavilion.
It’s been a cruel two years since I fell off the saddle in November 2013. I’ve climbed back on but been ejected here in Salem County. Bitter? Yes, like a pint of bitter it’s made me ill, again.
Won’t allow it a third time though.
The gluten coursing through this county will be avoided. They won’t make me this way again.
It’s over this time and for good.
