Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The Back to School dread
I took this picture yesterday, on the shop window of Tinc. It was not nearly as bad as last year, with the atrocious "Glow Back to School" word play that was just rubbing it in. All the same, I know I am an adult and thus should not feel like it, but at the end of August, when I see such window in the town center, I feel the blues and a certain dread. And they advertise it everywhere. I remember my dad asking me when I was a child if I was looking forward to go back to school and he always received a grumpy answer. Not that I was bad at school or anything, I just didn't want to be there. It was only in cégep (college for Anglo-Saxon countries) that I started looking forward to the beginning of the school year. But that is for another blog post (although I am sure I blogged about it before). Now I wanted to mention that I hate seeing these kinds of shop windows around this time of year.
