I had a wonderful opportunity to relive some old memories with my mother the other day, as we were going through a box of "stuff" that I had left behind when I moved out of their house. Among other things, we found sweatshirts from all of the productions I was involved with in high school, a vast and varied collection of keychains, my Tae Kwon Do gear and boards, and a black satin robe. As I started to put the robe on, I realized what it was. "This is my college graduation gown!"
And as I zipped it up, my mother excitedly proclaimed, "And it still fits!"
