… or whatever the equivalent is in youthful celebration speak, because …. [sound trumpets]
My mother passed the Real Estate exam this week. First time. Got the license printed on her birthday. She is 76.
This, the studying and cramming and changing gears so radically this late in the game, is her reaction to getting her retirement benefits cut to nothing since the company she worked for, some 20+ years, went broke and quit paying the promised, anticipated, and planned on retirement pay.
In between studying for the real estate license she applied for every job in her field and numerous others.
I’m so impressed with her I’m speechless, except –
Ma – Get a job already!
Wow. As Mair said, “You da man, Mom!”
