I have a college senior who’s preparing for grad school. This particular very bright child (who will remain nameless) said, “When I finish grad school, I can’t take any more classes.”
Me: Uh, yeah, that’s sort of the point. You teach.
Child: But I want to take more classes.
Child: Because I want to learn more.
Me: I believe you can sit in/take classes at the university where you teach.
Child: Really?! Could I get another degree?
Me: I suppose.
Apparently, this child wants to be an eternal student, which I sort of understand—we should all want to learn more and more, to the point of becoming autodidacts.
Of course, this is also the child who (just last night) sat on an open hamper, fell in, and had to be rescued—so maybe a course in common sense would help.
BTW, if you’d like to see the cover of my new novel, visit here.
