fortunately my son is not the kind who'll freak out that this postcard is pink. just in case you're thinkin the opposite.
i got an email from the son early this morning. as i've mentioned on numerous occasions he's not a big sleeper. so it was an email from around 230 am this morning. he's letting me know how things are going. apparently its hot (yeah... its hot 4 hours up the road too!) and his classes are already ridiculous. In his language - sonspeak -ridiculous is a synonym for awesome. And working on his car - he uses the term - extreming. He also uses extreming to convey his working on some computer program or another. You gotta know the sonspeak to get through a conversation. He was also relaying some information about what he was studying this semester - jabbering on about artificial intelligence and neural nets. I told him I knew what Aqua Net is but I wasn't so sure about a neural net. I decided to Wiki that neural net thing and then just for fun - Aqua Net. It really says something about who is writing those articles on Wiki if there is no mention of Aqua Net don't you think? and if you're reading this and you don't know what Aqua Net is well then i guess you're younger than me!
and for the record i cannot stand any hairspray. when i get my hair cut Michael, my hair guy, always makes an attempt to spray my hair. i prefer it au naturelle. i think it goes back to my childhood when Aqua Net was practically a requirement (when Mom's had hard hair). I just cannot stand the stuff on my hair.
