Today was the 90th birthday of one of the professors. What did he wish for? To be 30 years younger. He was really concerned about students attending class. They weren’t, he thought, because they were trying to make enough money to make ends meet. He’s using his birthday party to raise scholarship money next week.
Another prof mentioned that he was concerned about me but felt that I needed some distance. He said that one day, I’d look in the mirror and see my father smiling. One day that will be true.
