My one and only works at our Alma Mater. His job comes with many perks, mostly for him. Nice office, travel and a good schedule. He's gotten to trek to Seattle, Chicago, Nashville and other fabulous places all for the good of the cause. But, there is one perk that I get to enjoy. Or rather, am considering enjoying.
As his lucky spouse, I get to attend college for free. That's right, even though I already possess a most useful B.A., I can matriculate yet again for the purposes of higher(er) learning. You may be asking yourself, what is there to think about? Go forth, and study!!
But, I'm a little torn. You see, as an 18-21 year old student, there was only one thing we hated more than the cafeteria food. It was the non-traditional student. You know the one. . .in the front of the room, asking the most annoying questions seconds before class ended. Regaling everyone with stories about their children, jobs, pets, etc. I don't know if I could stand to be that person. Even a little bit.
But, can I really turn down the opportunity to hone my skills, learn some new things and do it all for nothing but the hell of it? I think the answer is no. Because, I know how much this chance would mean to other people, my husband included. So, I guess I need to dust of my plaid skirts and pencil cases. It's homework time.
