Two summers ago, my 16 year old son and I were at his orthodontist office on an appointment. Out of the blue, he asks, " Am I going to get to go to college?" I said "Of course you are - you know your mom and I both have our college degrees so, yes you're going. " He continues with "I really hope I get to go somewhere in Colorado. I love it out there".
I replied "I don't really care where you go, just as long as you GET OUT!!" He looks at me sideways and smiles. Then I said "Maybe we can find a school called the University of Get Out!"
Right then the office manager says "I wasn't eves dropping, but if you put that on a t-shirt, I'll buy three of them right now!" I smiled and said, "Ya - that would be a funny shirt that parents of high school grads could give as a present on their way out the door".
