The High Cost of Living Education

Have you seen those commercials on TV where the son gets his acceptance letter from a (presumably expensive) college and the father, muttering “Ivy League,” puts a for sale sign on his car and takes his golf clubs to the pawn shop?

I got a phone call from our daughter today. She had an interview with New York University and it seems that they offered her a place in the Film & Television program of the Tisch School of the Arts. I will wait until I see it in writing before I start to panic, but meanwhile I will have to begin making plans for taking in boarders – I have nothing to sell, and our daughter’s private school fees have already taken care of our second car.

I pray that there will be lots of translation work for the next four years.
