Q: How was Spring Awakening?
A: This is the play to see while on a college tour with your teen. There is coming-of-age angst. There is a rock anthem called "You’re Fucked". And there’s a a naked butt and the closest thing to real intercourse that you’ll ever see on a Broadway stage. If you can handle viewing this with your child without both of you dying of embarrassment, you’re ready to send him or her off to college.
Q: Did you look at any safety schools?
A: We did visit one safety, now referred to by college counselors as a "likely". What a relief to be somewhere where you don’t need a 4.5, a 2400 and an Olympic medal to be accepted. There were some interesting programs for CJ. And the chatty round-table info session with the charasmatic dean presented a whole new way to approach this sort of trip – visiting schools where you can actually get in.
Q: Will you continue this blog until CJ gets his first acceptance letter?
A: Considering the possibilty, especially if I can get some corporate sponsors.
