I think I mentioned in my last post that I am going back to college. I’m actually pretty excited about hanging out in the hallowed halls of learning again. As geeky as it sounds, I’m looking forward to sitting in a lecture hall, having homework and and pulling all nighters. Ok, maybe not the all nighters. I wasn’t a huge fan of them the first time around.
Not everyone in my household, however, was initially as excited as I was. When I shared the news with my 10 year old that I had been accepted and was going back to complete my degree, he got a very concerned look on his face.
“You’re going back to college?” he asked.
“Yes!” I replied, “Isn’t that cool?”
In a quavering voice he asked, “Are you going to live in the dorms?”
“Yep,” I said, “but I’ll be home on weekends to do my laundry.”
