First of all, it was October, a rare month for boys. Not that all months aren’t rare. But there be bad and good, as pirates say. Take September, a bad month: school begins. Consider August, a good month: school hasn’t begun yet. July, well, July’s really fine: there’s no chance in the world for school. June, no doubting it, June’s best of all, for the school doors swing wide and September’s a billion years away.
