I used to live in New York. At the school I went to, they had a stern rule. NO CELL PHONES OR ELECTRONICS. They spent the whole year enforcing this. One glimpse or ring and it's confiscated. It was in the announcements practically every morning.
Obviously, this story has to lead somewhere. I would not have a whole story saying that a school wanted no electronics. So as I said, this was a really big deal in the school.
It was close to the end of the year. So when I got the new yearbook, I was very surprised. Because right there smack on the front was a picture of a backpack. And you know what was in that backpack? That's right. An iPod and a cell phone. After a year of trying to take them away, it's on the cover of our memories of that year.
Hey, that IS what the year was all about, right?
