Other Anxieties

Mac got a thin let­ter from his kinder­garten-school fist pick. I sud­den­ly got anx­ious and ner­vous, warp­ing back some 22 years ago to stom­ach-crush­ing anxiety.

Turns out it was­n’t a sin­gle-page let­ter thank­ing him for apply­ing and wish­ing him well in his future endeavors.

Instead there was a sec­ond let­ter stat­ing what his tuition bill would be for the year and the expec­ta­tion and require­ments. Strange­ly, I got a thrill about this.
