Today was my brother's high school graduation. Being that he went to prep school and all the kids
achievements resumes were read this meant the ceremony was over 3 hours long. My high school class was twice the size and I'd venture to say it was over in 2 hours. Hell, my class at U of M was probably 40 times the size and it didn't last that long.
My personal highlights of the evening:
- The CEO of Diamler/Chrysler was the Keynote speaker. This was funny for a few reasons. 1-At my graduation from U of M the Key note speaker was a race car driver who founded car and driver magazine-his high school gets Diamler/Chrysler. 2- My brother dated his daughter. 3- While he was giving a speach about technology such as "Text Messaging" actually taking us further away from people I was texting back and forth with an associate. Ok so maybe those 3 are only funny to me, but whatever.
- The Indian Family seated behind us. The dad kept correcting all the pronounciations of indian names in this really snarky indignant way. Everytime he did it I had all I could do to not crack up. I really wish I would have thought to record to illustrate, but I didn't so you'll just have to picture Apu from The Simpsons (in fact that is exactly how his hair was styled) mocking 2 middle aged ivy league educated men. Classic.
