So M and I went up to Party Central this weekend to visit Junior at college. It's a beautiful campus and has about 25,000 students there. So I won't be surprised if my Junior gets lost in the mix and his teachers don't know who he is. Hopefully he does well enough this semester that they'll let him come back next semester, but judging by his sleep deprivation and kennel cough, I'm not so sure.
After repeated calls to wake up Junior to come down and let us in (to his friend's dorm room) he finally appears. His first comments to us are "I need a haircut." Great! That's one battle down that we won't have to fight. This is the after picture. He easily had 3-4 inches cut off. Anyway, Junior hasn't been staying in his "Scholars" dorm because it's not as nice as the "Honors" dorm where his best friend, Mr. Thespian, lives. This is also the dorm where all Junior's friends live and where all the all-night video game parties are held in the "man nest." I love how they refer to it as a nest and not a cave. He admitted that he was severely sleep deprived but didn't express any ideas on how to correct that, if he even thought that should be corrected, or any inkling if this sleep deprivation might eventually affect his grades. So we kept our visit short, figuring he needed to get back to sleep. We got the haircut, a filling meal, cough medicine and cough drops, plus gift cards for other eateries. He seemed happy with the visit. I received multiple hugs, "I love you"s and I even got to take this picture. The last time he was that friendly was when he had his wisdom teeth removed and he wasn't in his right mind. Okay, so maybe the sleep deprivation caused all this friendliness, but I prefer to think he was sincere and actually missed us. *smirk*
