104.Catching Up on the Kids
"So my son's going to graduate school! He won a graduate fellowship!"
Mr. Williams said as he bent down to shoot another hole on the golf course.
"It's funny! I always thought he would be good for nothing!"
"What?" Mr. Denny asked. "When did you think that?"
"Oh back when he was younger. He and trouble went hand in hand there for a while, you know?
He didn't have a good temper, he got in fights, and he was always off going places with the wrong crowd!"
Mr. Williams stopped and hit the ball.
"Sometimes he would even go without food for days-we were sure he was on drugs."
"Hmmm. Things sure have changed!" Mr. Denny said as he stepped up to take his turn.
"Did you have anything to do with that?"
"Nope. One day he was just up and changed.
And his good nature started coming out!
It's a good thing too, because one of his friends was shot the following year."
"Oh yeah. I heard about that，" Mr. Denny said, concentrating on the ball.
"Yep, it was pretty lucky for my son.
Well after that my son graduated with honors from high school.
Then in college he did so well that he was invited to take some graduate level courses."
"Oh, say, did he ever pay off his loans?"
"Nope. But he got them at an interest rate that is a good bargain.
And he won't have to pay during graduate school or for a grace period of 12 months when he's done. He'll be fine."
"Good. Hey, do you get the "Yep. It's 11:45."
"How about we hang it up for now and grab a bite?"
"Sure, hey, how's your daughter doing".?"
