The Graduation Cat

A funny thing happened when we were at Ginger's 6th grade graduation last month. As the end of the ceremony neared, we were reminded over the microphone to make sure to pick up our student's graduation cap before we left (a construction paper version that was taped to the wall). Pen got a confused look on her face and said, "Why are they giving them a graduation cat?" I about died laughing. Cap, Pen, CAP.

We've been cracking jokes about it ever since. And then, while Pen was sitting next to me on the couch the other day, I ran across a funny story online. It was about a woman who ordered a cake with her daughter's picture on it for high school graduation. Apparently, when she requested of the young bakery worker that maybe they could draw a cap on her head with icing, the kid got a kinda weird look on his face. Gee, I wonder why...



I showed it to Pen and we both totally cracked up. I'm absolutely gonna order that for Pen when she graduates in a few years. No question.
