Our son graduated nursing school here, and I was very embarrassed for him. The graduate just before him had a family who must have been raised in a zoo. When her name was called they jumped up, hooted and hollered, danced around, yelled and even set off air horns. I suppose little Miss What's-Her-Name was the only one in the history of the family who had ever been to school -- at least it seems so from the action of her family. The dean of the school asked that there be no such zoo antics at least 20 times, to no avail.
I am now convinced that there should be two ceremonies held: one for normal families, and one for the folks from the zoo. You know who you are.
