Class Dismissed


Kevin is attending two colleges this year—Johnson County Community College (which, according to Kevin, is cool) and Longview Community College (which, according to Kevin, sucks). This perspective is due to the fact that we live just inches over the state line in Missouri (which, according to Kevin, sucks), and most of Kevin's friends live on the Kansas side (which, according to Kevin, is cool).

When Kevin brought up his interest in photography again, I suggested that he should consider taking a photography class next semester.

"I don't think so," Kevin said. "I'd have to do it at Longview to get the in-state tuition, and Longview sucks."

"You're saying you would abandon something you really enjoy, jeopardize your future career opportunities, and give up a lifetime goal just because you don't like the campus?"

"Oh Dad, that's so lame."

If only I hadn't avoided that debate class because the other kids weren't cool, I'm sure I would have had a snappy comeback.

This entry really gave me a chuckle. I enjoy reading both your blog and Katie's, even if for no other reason than to see the parental view on a young man's life. Of course there are other reasons too, but this one hits home seeing how I share the same name, and I am in the same age bracket...

Thanks for this!
