Overheard in the C-shop

Sitting in the C-Shop at the University of Chicago yesterday,* I overheard a man talking to his son and daughter as they walked past my table looking at all the gothic architecture and at the old framed postcards on the walls. The kids must have been around twelve. Their father was telling them: "if you work hard and apply yourselves, you could study here. You could have all this."

Listen up, kiddies. It can be really, really fun.


* I'm in Hyde Park over the weekend to hunt down an apartment for next year. This place is great. I still don't understand why so many people claim not to like the neighborhood.
