As in play, which my youngest nephew informed me he doesn’t get to do during recess P.L.A., Post-Lunch Activity.
I learned this as we were going to get ice on Thanksgiving morning. (It’s a Brooks family tradition called “The Getting Of The Ice.”)
“So what’s your favorite subject, recess?”
“We don’t have recess.”
“You don’t have recess?”
“No. We have P.L.A. Post-lunch activity. They think we’re too old for recess.”
“What grade are you again?”
“So what do you do at P.L.A.?”
“Walk in line in a big circle.”
“You gotta be shi kidding me.”
As it turns out, they made sixth a middle school grade and apparently recess would be very uncool for middle schoolers.
I would like to challenge his principal.
Dodgeball. Best 2 out of 3. See you on the playground, pal.
