My little sister graduated from high school this afternoon. She attended the same high school that I worked at prior to attending law school, so I packed my old cap and gown on the rare chance that they would let me out on the football field. I showed up at the school first thing this morning to visit with old friends and see if I couldn't convince someone to let me participate in the ceremony.
And, oh my god, law school must have WORKED, people, because my ability to persuade was PHENOMENAL. (That, or I have really sweet friends in the office--Hi Mary and Carol!--who got me in. Okay, maybe that was it.)
So! I was on the field! In my pink hood, of course! And I got to hand my sister her diploma! It was all very spectacular and memorable.
Congrats baby sister and all my '08 pals. Y'all are the real deal.
