I Graduated Yesterday……(well sort of)

Well the truth of the matter is that my cousin graduated yesterday after five long years as a med student. I graduated (twice) many years ago and missed both graduations. I know I know, missing one is understandable but missing two is just careless. Anyway the upshot of not going to my graduations is that I had no graduation photographs. This is something that has never really bothered me but which my mother has had a tendency to bring up now and again. It didn’t help a couple of months ago around the time of my sister’s wedding when my brother arrived home from Australia and suddenly framed graduation photos were popping up all over the house. I had meant to get some graduation photographs taken but I never got around to it. The situation was rectified yesterday in a very painless manner when I took some fake graduation photos wearing my cousin’s cap & gown and using a rolled up lunch menu in lieu of my degree. I didn’t feel too bad about it either when my cousin's younger brother and sister got in on the act and both had their photographs taken wearing her cap and gown. I think it’s a good idea to have a few spare graduation photos hanging around just in case they miss their real graduations when the time comes.

LOL! Your mum must be delighted. Ah, to relive those golden days again...
Well, I'm either really early or really late for everything (it annoys everyone), and I have a feeling that I'll be really late for something important like my graduation.
So that sounds like a good plan.
Yeah, my Mum got a bit too into the whole occassion and started worrying about what she would wear for the photos. I took the photos with my little Nikon so they aren't in the least bit professional looking!

Backup graduation photos are definitely the way to go. :-)
