I don’t think of myself as a total misanthrope, but I had drinks recently with two friends (Hi, Sarah and Jennifer! I’m talking about you!) and I brought up the topic of Other Parents and how I hate chit-chatting with Them at school pick-up and what if they want to be FRIENDS, what do I DO, and from Sarah and Jen’s reaction, it was clear I was alone with this feeling. Look. LOOK. I like lots of parents at Henry’s school. I just don’t like Parents as a category. I like people. It’s Humanity I have a hard time with.
