on my graduate...

me: "We should have a graduation party for you when your family is in town."
Jay: "Yeah, we should. Oh, and speaking of graduation, I just realized that I missed the cut-off for buying tickets."
me: (blank stare.) "Tickets? To graduation?"
Jay: "Yeah."
me: "Okay. So, I'm just going to be sitting in the parking lot listening from afar, or what?"
Jay: "No, I just don't think I'll walk. It's not a big deal. I'm still graduating."
me: "Well, I think it's a big deal. But whatever you want to do."
Jay: "Except that I think I already spend $80 on a cap and gown."
me: "Well, I guess we know what you're wearing to the graduation party, then."

He thinks I'm kidding. Silly boy. Either he wears that cap and gown to the party, or I stage a full on photo shoot where I take graduation photos of him in the front yard.

It's one or the other, my love. One or the other.

  2. ohh! not to be pushy but I really think he should look into it and walk. I thought it wouldn't be worth it, but you really don't feel that sense of accomplishment until you are walking across the stage.. I was really grateful that I did. just a thought.

  5. I agree with Steph and Ashley-- I didn't think I cared about walking for graduation but I'm really glad that I did. I think he'll regret it later if he skips out on the whole thing. He's earned it-- he should totally live in the moment! I'm sure if he talks to someone he could get you a ticket! OH man, silly boys! I think you should still do the grad photo shoot, either way!
