Too Late

I recently got a graduation announcement in the mail. Granted this is from a family member I know so it's not particularly surprising it took her 90 days after the graduation event occurred to get her shit in gear.

I mean you need to buy the announcements, get stamps, address them all, make a subtle plea for continuing educational resources.

But what is the statue of limitations on graduation announcements?

Now it's not like this young lady just graduated from Harvard. It's a lesser institution and I'm fairly certain she was not so besieged with job offers that she's just now getting around to the begging task at hand.

I mean, what's keeping anyone from saying, "It's been 15 years since I was in school, but I'd like some cash or at the very least a nice pen I can lose in a couple of weeks from you." Though they'd probably have trouble losing this.

I'm definitely sending a check instead of cash. There's good chance she'll lose it.....

If you're writing cheques, I'll be celebrating 18 years of marriage right away. Just sayin'.

I don't recall much money being thrown my way when I sent out announcements. I think someone owes me.
