It wasn’t the howl of the wind, nor the cold creeky floors that sent a chill down her spine as she sat at the desk, staring at the computer in the wee hours of the morning. The tap, tap, tap of a frozen tree branch on the nearby window didn’t raise the hairs on the back of her neck quite like her own thoughts – her mind whirling with the greatest fear any class parent can face – hitting “send” on her email asking for class party helpers- dreading the furiously inevitable storm of reply-all emails that would soon follow.
She cringed at the thought and even contemplated not sending, just doing it herself – maybe calling a few folks. But sifting through voicemails and missed calls lent itself to the same paralyzing fear that kept her hand from clicking the mouse to send at that very moment.
