    Nun’Ya Bidness – That must have really left a whole in your life. My condolensces.
    FYI “Unusual” in a synonym for “special”. Your mother was a very special person, exceptionally so, and her mother was amazed at how wonderful her little girl had grown up to be.

    “Maybe the most successful person in the class "
    Seismic, we never did “most successful” at reunions because we don’t compete with each other and because there are too many definitions of success. Financial success for leslie; perhaps social success for Delta; perhaps technical success for Bern, etc.
    Dad, you’re being a big unfair here. You & Mom are the enablers.
    Lu never had to worry much about money in high school— you provided the necessities, you gave in to her frequent requests for money, and she supplemented it with fun part-time jobs.
    Now Lu is in college & you again are paying. When are you going to force her to learn to think about a paycheck? About a budget?

    Lu, I thought you went to Pitt CC because it had a good basic theater / drama department. Are you so easily distracted?

    Good thinking, Clyde.
    Write bogus directions down for him, incur a debt of gratitude, then ask him for $2.
    Everyone smiles when they’re eating a taco!

    “No comment yet on how school can make ANY subject boring?”
    Leeroy – My thought exactly. Never took human sexuality, but imagine the in-depth analysis of anatomy and culture would be interesting for about two weeks.
    Funny, but that was the way of all courses— interesting in the general principles but tedious in the detail. Yet now I see that those who master the details are the ones who succeed.
