Gordy, now 25, avoided the emotional trauma or embarrassment of having to move back in with us by choosing to attend college a half-hr. subway ride away; his postgrad training classes are all at Chicago theater companies and he is looking at Northwestern (a 15-minute train ride in the opposite direction) for its Masters program in comedy and theatrical writing. And he had the good taste to choose a college with tuition lower than that of his high school!
And you know what? Even though I left the nest (and flew 3000 miles away) to marry at 20, I'm not emotionally ready to let him go yet!
