First Day of School – Done

Dani’s first day at school is over. Thankfully he seems to be completely fine. Not at all distressed and not even bothering to say that he doesn’t want to go back in the morning. Although when he has to wake up he will protest. That is certain. He happily trotted out of the school building as if there was never a problem this morning.

Was it an act?

In fact, he is completely oblivious to the fact that he was so distressed earlier. As if nothing had happened. As if it was all an act just to get rid of us and leave us worrying about him all day. Clever lad if this is the case. Manipulation by words and acts counts for a lot in the workplace. More so than a good education and plenty of hands-on experience – if all my years in industry has taught me anything. I am sure you all know what I mean. This is the world we are in and it isn’t going to change for the better when Dani has to go out and compete in the workplace.

School or Fight Club?

Although he seems happy-go-lucky he doesn’t want to divulge any information about his first day at school. It seems to be more like Fight Club than school. A great movie which oddly enough I have only seen once. Even if you haven’t seen the film you may well be familiar with the rules of fight club.

First rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club.

Second rule of Fight Club: You DO NOT talk about Fight Club.

There are 6 other rules but you get the point right? He does not want to talk about school.


While he didn’t speak of school itself he did say one thing about going to the toilet. It seems that the “ladies in white” help the kids when they have to go. The kids are supposed to be toilet trained before starting school in Spain even though many may not even be three years old (like Dani). However, wiping a kid’s arse is clearly beneath the teachers. This is where the “ladies in white” come in handy.

Actually I can sympathise with the teachers. They have their hands full with those little midgets.

And so, Dani is fast asleep and we shall see tomorrow morning if he does not eat his breakfast, refuses to put his uniform on and complains that he does not want to go to school again…
