Three of my friends were expelled from school when I was in secondary school. I was stateless and partnerless for at least a year

A day of class! Have you ever heard anything like this? The only bonds we had in my day were ionic, covalent, metallic, and molecular. School was all about pounding fact after fact into our heads, none of that delicate emotional well-being malarky. Collective PTSD was the closest we got to some sort of bonding with our classmates, and look at us – aren’t we great? I mean apart from the crippling emotional issues and whatnot. But today’s soft youth needs to bond, so I had to dig deep and shell out a whopping €20 to take my son on a luxury cruise to a beautiful island as part of a bonding experience of sorts. I had assumed the English teacher would stage a live re-enactment of Lord Of The Flies, but apparently no – it was just to give them a day off. So my “packed lunch? More like packed clams!” Wit was totally wasted on him.

From Cobh (rarely a good omen, behold – Titanic, The) you would be headed straight for the tropical delights of Spike Island, nestled in the heart of Cork Harbor (as a Cork person, I’m bound by contract to claim it’s the second largest natural harbor in the world). In many ways it was the perfect place for a rowdy group of teenagers, as it was once a juvenile detention center. But they made it to the island and back without anyone falling overboard or being left behind. As for the bonds formed that day, who knows, but my son’s circle of friends had their own issues in that regard.
