Water Main Break Shuts Down Upper Cape High – Remember That Feeling?


WL – Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School of Bourne is dismissing all its students today at 11:30 a.m. According to Superintendent Robert Dutch, a water main break has temporarily disrupted all water service in the building, requiring its closure.

I know this isn’t exactly cutting edge news, but I couldn’t stop thinking about something after reading it. How great of a feeling is it to be a high school student when out of nowhere they suddenly tell you that school’s over for the day? Such a glorious gift from the gods when you least expect it.

Is there anything you can compare that feeling to as an adult? A water main break at work just isn’t the same. When you are a kid you know that you are absolutely stuck at school. You can’t leave, there’s simply no way out. You go from being completely trapped to total freedom in a split second. Too bad we can’t bottle that feeling and sell it, we’d be millionaires.

I don’t know about you, but a water main break induced school cancellation out of nowhere when I was in high school meant you immediately got a case of Natty Light, hit the woods and started living. I’m talking about L-I-V-I-N. Drink some brews, smoke some butts, make fun of your friends, make out with someone, drink some more brews and do something stupid. What a country!

Maybe we should have a high school water main break themed party where we all drink cheap beer during the day and pretend that the biggest stress we have in life is not getting the clap from our prom date.

P.S. High school’s over Hippie, get over it.
