Belle of Leaning Blue is stressing out a little prior to her graduation from college. I’m sure there are a few others who are in a similar situation, so let me pass along a few words from my favorite philosopher, Rodney Dangerfield, from his work, “Back to School”. This is the commencement address he gave:
Thank you, Dean Martin, President Sinclair…
and members of the graduating class.
I have only one thing to say to you today…
It’s a jungle out there.
You gotta look out for number one.
But don’t step in number two.
And so, to all you graduates… as you go out into the world my advice to you is…
Don’t go! It’s rough out there. Move back with your parents. Let them worry about it.
