Well, it's happened. Boyo Merv is going off to university, meaning I'll be an empty nester within the year. Mother Merv & I pushed pretty hard for him to attend Marist, but he has his heart set on Colby in Maine.
Now, I wouldn't have known Marist from Podunk University until I started seeing their name show up on some FOX news polling. I've still never heard of Colby in professional context, but Teh Interwebz indicates it's top of the top of the top. He believes that the holy name of Colby will magically open professional doors later in life that Marist never could, even though he would have been out of Marist an entire year earlier & been able to use all the AP courses he's accumulated over the past several years.
I told boyo that your high school grades only matter until your first year of university, which only matters until your first job performance review.
What say the OTF?
