Beetle boy

I feel so sorry for the Boy Of The House when he leaves for school every day.

He looks like some kind of giant turtle with this HUGE black rucksack full of books on his back.

The Lady Of The House says it's schools like the B O T H's that cost the country millions in time off when these over-laden kids grown up to have back problems and lots of sick leave.

I don't know about that - but I do worry that one morning when we set off for our morning walk - 20 minutes or so after the B O T H has left - we will come across him on the pavement, lying on top of his giant rucksack, facing the sky, with his arms and legs waving like a distressed beetle.
