We took Erin on her first visit to a university.  She had made up her mind long before we left the house but at least she now has perspective.  Who can blame her?  The University of Tulsa is the local in-town college and she wants to leave home and go someplace new. 

It was certainly convenient; it was Martin Luther King day and she wasn’t in school so we didn’t lose any school time. 

That holiday always reminds me of my worst joke ever.  I always say I want to get a king-sized loofah sponge and call it “Martin”.  You know:  Martin Loofah King.  Get it?  Nobody even bothers to groan with that one.  Still, I keep hoping.
