Yesterday a friend and I went to get coffee with another friend. When we got there the guy we were meeting already arrived and he was catching up with his childhood friend, Ron, whom he hadn’t seen in twenty years. Ron was in the military, air force branch or something like that. He had his 9 year old son with him as well, who was cute and nice, drinking a frozen mocha.
They were talking about many topics, and then schooling came up. Ron then asked where his son wanted to go to school, and my friend asked Texas? OSU? The kid didn’t know yet, because he’s 9. Ron looked at his son and said, “Your college is already paid for so go anywhere you want.” Damn G.I. bills! I instantly hated the 9 year old, and even more so later that evening as I was on the phone hounding college loan sharks for forbearance.
