Conversations From College

Posted by Carol on February 7, 2008

Some of you have wondered if College Son ever calls home, especially after this post.Well, he has called home a few times so far this semester and here are a few of the ways he has started the conversation:

“Hi Mom, I’m just calling to see if you think I need to go to the Emergency Room.”


“I wanted to let you know that we’re going snowboarding today.”


“It’s been a while since we talked and I wanted to say ‘hi’.” 

And here’s how he ended (or thought he would be ending) one conversation:

“Oh, yeah, did I tell you I almost got mugged on my way back from chem lab the other night?”

I have figured out that all I can really do is pray – a lot.  But isn’t that the truth about everything anyway?

As College Son says at the end of his phone calls:

“Much Love”,
