Friday scares me. Every Friday morning, I wake up with a premonition that something bad is going to happen. No, not something little like a bad day at school where I get called on to read my story in front of the class and the boys make faces at me and the girls whisper about my awful clothes or getting to the end of the lunch line and having to put my food back because Mom didn’t send the form saying that I still qualify for free lunch. No, more like impending doom.
