Fruit of my Loins

For those who may be curious, here's an update on the girls.

Our oldest daughter Robyn is quietly putting the finishing touches on her college education. She's working two jobs, getting good grades, and is looking forward to graduating, after which she'll prosper. I have no doubt about that.

Rachael (Mookie), on the other hand, does nothing quietly. She made the Dean's List in her first semester and is preparing for a three week-long school trip to London this Spring. As exciting as that sounds, she may be even more hyped over a possible summer job. She's been offered a chance to be Wardrobe Mistress at an opera house near Montecello in central Virginia. Besides pay, the job comes with an apartment. A lot of it will be the typical scut work that all newbies have to endure at the start of a career, but all experience is valuable.

Proud Papa, signing off.

1 Congrats, Dad, and best regards to the kids.

While it's not as spectacular an achievement as your girls, Brian has been training new people at his Starbucks and is in line for a supervisor job when he turns 18. I'm just as proud of him as I would be if he was a nuclear scientist. Besides, I get a family discount on my mood-altering beverages. What could be better?

2 I know a bit about Brian's background, and it's easy to imagine him becoming a regional manager for Starbucks in Japan. He's got his act together.

3 Honestly, Ted, which do you prefer: Embarrasing your kids, or bragging about them? ;~)

4 Actually Dad, It's officially mine. It was agreed yesterday, so I'm all good to go with the job. I'll be working for Ash Lawn Opera as Top Hand and Costume Mistress.

Not as much scut work as you'd think, though still a lot.

5 Victor, if I really wanted to embarrass the kids, I'd have mentioned that Rachael was conceived in Luxembourg.
