My son, the College Graduate!
This may not be a big deal to most of you, for whom higher education is a given. However, I am a college dropout, and neither of my parents graduated from high school. I had to make sure I was wearing nothing that buttoned tightly, because I would have busted them buttons, fer sure!
So, now he's off to find a job in Chicago, and I shall have to brave the frozen north to see the Young Adult in his habitat. Let's see...Jan just gave me a beautiful fur jacket, and I still have the warm boots Vanessa gave me...I should be good to go.
Now I have a black cap and gown to but with the maroon set from high school. I have to say, though, that this one suits him better. Maroon is not his colour.
Isn't he gorgeous?
