REPORTING LIVE FROM THE FACEBOOK NEWS DESK
IN THE VIRTUAL JASPER JOTTINGS NEWSROOM …
Christopher Morrison 31 mins · I woke with a start this morning at 6:25. I stumbled out of bed, threw on clothes, and ambled down the hall to my son’s room. We were supposed to be on the road at 6:30.A few minutes later, we were in the car racing up the New Jersey Turnpike on our way to the Bronx. Our destination? Van Cortland Park, or as I think of it, Manhattan College’s front lawn. He was running in a cross-country race. I was the chauffeur.
As he sat beside me, tuning up his spikes with his little spike wrench, I asked him: “Hey, where do you want to go to college?”He is a sophomore in high school. Plenty of time. But these moments where he cannot squirm away from topics like this will begin to vanish. That is what happened with his older siblings. College decision day will be here and I will wish I had talked more about choices to be made.
“I don’t know, Dad.”
“I would recommend Manhattan College.”
“It is where most of the really intelligent, good-looking people go.”
“That is true, Dad. Very true.”
“I went there.”
“Keep it in mind, my friend. Keep it in mind.”
Tightening of spikes continues.
Just planting seeds.
