It's Spring Break, Charlie Brown

When I was a kid, and in my teens, and in college, I always assumed that Spring Break was for us kids.  Negative.  Spring break is for the grown-ups.  I understand that, now.  Because Linus explained it to me, and at the end he said, "So you see, Charlie Brown ... Spring Break was not created for the children.  It was made for the adults that are responsible for educating the children.  And it was made in the middle of the Spring semester to keep them from losing their shit."
And so, as some college kid takes off to a beach somewhere to go surfing with Jaws, I will be honoring the true spirit and meaning of Spring Break with NyQuil shooters and a quiet nod to the Spring Break Gods.
