Sleep-Away College

"Mom, I'm just letting you know...I'm not going to any 'sleep-away' college."

"Asher, you know you get to eat breakfast there," says Lucy.

"Mom, is that true?"


"Like cereal?"


"like...sugar cereal?!"


"Even marshmallow cereal? And pebble cereal? And fruit loops?"

"Yes Asher. You get to eat pretty much whatever you like at college."

"Sold! I'm going mom! I'll see you in four years!"

" doesn't quite work like that..."

(he stops paying attention while he dreams of ALL the cereal he will eat while I pay for that right.)
