Man, I attended a graduation tonight. It's exciting for the graduate, but, man, it's tough for the people not graduating. Sit through numerous speeches, too many songs, instrumental pieces <yawn!>.

It was held in a nice classical theatre, but with so many people crammed into the place I was sweating my balls off. You smell everybody's delicious body odor <sarcasm>.

Adding to the stress are members of attending family you don't get along with -- at all. Thank god when she graduates from college b/c it's a ways down the road.
