Well, if that is not what your birdie told you, your birdie is lying or confused.  Or perhaps you are confused about what you heard.

My birdie is really good. Seems you skipped the question from Jam's about your other son. Why?

Sometimes he does blue collar work.  It's five words, with a subject and a predicate and some simple punctuation.   How could you possibly be confused?

Do you know something I don't know? When has he done white collar work?

  There was a question from Jams?  I already said that I really had no plans of discussion my children's plans here.  You already know that he dropped out of college after a year and a half because he didn't really like his major much and wasn't sure what he really wanted to do with his life.  It was a temporary thing, and he's doing fine now, and I hope he likes his new major as much as he thinks he will.  It really isn't uncommon for kids to take awhile to find their direction, and it's nothing to be ashamed of, however much you might want to snigger.  I have talked to two kids today who want to change direction.  One graduated two years ago, has been working full time, and really wants to go to grad school in history now.   One dropped out of grad school, has been working in the corporate world for eighteen months, and hates it.  He's not sure he can afford to make a change at this point, but he's exploring it.  Not everyone finds their path early on.  It's not a race.  As long as people are doing honorable work, what business is it of anyone else's?

  Good Lord, you are confused.   Do you think those are the only two options in life:  Blue or White?

I am asking you what the word SOMETIMES you used means. Why is this such a difficulty for you?

I've never changed my mind.  I am in favor of all the education one can get.  Education enriches life.  I have never cared what my kids "did" with their education, as long as it was honorable work.  I've never shared your mercenary ideas about what an education is "for."  I've pointed out many times that I actually LOST money by following my own dreams and returning to school for graduate education.   I have never had any vision of my own what the kids would do with their lives, that has always been their vision; our role has been to support and enable.

Are you really asking Bord for the definition of the word "sometimes"?
