Something Funny

Here's something I think is kind of funny... My daughter has applied to 13 different colleges and universities around the country - and not just the generic ones, I'm talking name brand colleges - the type that wind up in Hollywood movies with stuffy people sitting around large, wooden tables in rooms filled floor-to-ceiling with books - and if one of those places happens to accept her, I have absolutely no idea of how we are going to pay for it.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAHHAHAH (Psychotic laugh)

This is all my mother's fault. First, she and her other two daughters conspired and colluded - and my daughter marched off to boarding school. (At tuition time, there was neither hide nor hair of them to be found...)

Then she hands my daughter a credit card (which I only found out about by accident) and instead of heading straight off to Saks or Nordstrom and spending a small fortune on shoes like a normal kid (thereby teaching my mother a valuable lesson) - my daughter uses it to pay the college application fees and apply to every college she has ever heard of.

And the college fund that I started for her when she was born? I think there are 2 or 3 thousand dollars in it... that would barely cover the cost of applying. I don't know what happened! I blinked and she grew up.

Excuse me for a sec while I lose it...

(More psychotic laughter )

And by the way, my mother never gave me a credit card!

Ackbar.

Well, I wish I could say that I knew that Akbar was Arabic, but I didn't. I thought I was quoting Bill The Cat.
