Christmas: A Grandfather’s Perspective

art_mccain_gi Would you look at this weather? Son, in my day we schlepped our bags to and from school, three miles each way in the middle of a blizzard. How are your grades? You better start preparing for college. You know your father and I are counting on you to carry on the legacy at Brown. You don’t want to go to Brown? Well, you have two years to change your mind.
Did I ever tell you the story of my first frat party? It was a warm Septemb- I’ve already told it to you? How about the day I met your grandmother? That too? Oh, well then. Do you have a girlfriend? With a face like that I’m surprised girls aren’t falling all over you. I remember when I was in high school; I had my pick of the girls. Good thing I met your grandmother. She made me fall in love with her by baking her famous butter pecan cookies. Have you tried one yet?
