My daughter left me this butter sculpture by the toaster this morning. The more I contemplated it the more I realized that it was the perfect metaphor for middle school.
Seen from the right angle, it looks just like a person stretching both hands to the sky and yelling, “FREEDOM!” Awesome, right?
Seen from another, it just seems… well, ooky.
It’s the perfect middle school metaphor: Awesome and ooky.
