591. Lorraine said, "Daddy, I wish I was through with school. Through with taking the school bus every morning, listening to teachers every day, doing homework every night. I can't wait till I'm a grownup. Till I have my own place. Drive my own car. Watch TV or DVDs every night. Go out to clubs." Her dad said, "Be careful what you wish for. Later in life, you'll probably remember your school years as some of the best years of your life. Growing up with all your friends. Having summer vacations every year. Going on school trips with your classmates. Enjoy school while you can. The working world isn't all peaches and cream. Right now, you're looking forward to an exciting future. In the future, you might be wishing that you were back in school again." Lorraine said, "Humph! I'll never wish that!" Her dad said, "Also, honey, never say never." 3.3
