Oooh, you've successfully navigated teenage daughterdom. (Almost anyway.) Achievement unlocked!
I already managed it (badly) with a son who is 23...so college, too. The daughter, IMHO, was a piece of cake.
Is she going to go off to college now? Does she have any idea what she wants to major in?
She has been elected to serve a year as a State Office in the CA FFA, and that requires that she postpone college for a year. When she does go, she will major in agricultural communications, probably. Who knows? Kids change direction on a dime at her age.
Agricultural communications: is that like Dr. Dolittle, talking to the animals?
Or maybe a County Kimball, like Hank Agent?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! to both FrankC and RG! Ag Communications prepares you for a career in TV broadcast, PR, radio and journalism. She's kind of a looker, (if I do say so myself) and so I keep telling her she should be a Fox TV News girl. How hard can it be to read in front of a camera? Obama does just fine at it.
Congrats! Just graduated mine two weeks ago. Now if I could figure out how to keep her from falling for strays....
Her dad is a retired equine veterinarian...with a HUGE pair of emasculators. So far...so good.
I always preferred the Elastrator tool that used the rubber bands. Lambs, kids, and calves tended to walk funny for a while after the rubber band was put on.Use that, and the neighbors, seeing a teen-age boy walking funny will ask them, "Uh, huh! Tried to date Buttercup's daughter didn't you? Dummy!" Buwahahahahaha
HAHAHAHA! But boys have opposable thumbs and could get those rubber bands off. Emasculators don't leave any options.....:)
