End of School Year Fluff

1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

Actually, with The Boy, it's probably because we were in the land of Baseball Heaven!

You don't have your own definition, you have to use someone else's?

" A friend is someone you usually spend a lot of time with" Do you have a source for that definition?

At one point in a debate, I was told that I couldn't possibly cook dinner as much as I didn't because I have 2-3 social things a week, while that poster only had 1-2 a month....I wonder if the definition will now include a double standard?

So basically just talking. And an 18 year old is really interested in being with a 40 + year old adult so much? Hmmm...I can see maybe here and there at a party or such but most 18 year olds are more interested in hanging out with their own friends (if they are social people, of course). </span></strong></p>

You aren't friends with 18 year olds (by your own words) so how on earth would you know and wow, what a judgement there springy.

I do...both ends and everyone in between.  I thought you claimed to have such wide and vast experiences, but it keeps getting smaller and smaller.

I thought you traveled a lot, spoke to a lot of people and so forth...even I have seen Benetton stores since high school.  :)

"Wow. Didn't even know they were still around. At least I know the stores haven't been in the malls since I was in high school." -------------- LOL, ok, but in Europe Benetton is still all over.

I saw one recently when traveling....trying to remember where I saw it.  I think either Florida or Chicago.
