We stood in amazement as our son was awarded his degree. To us he’d wasted his years, he did very little work, he attended the bar more than he did lectures and he seemed disinterested in everything academic.
Often, he would be out all night, his string of girlfriends stretched into a fog of who was who. Today he was with Jodie, tomorrow, who knew which hapless girl he’d bring home.
Our day was capped off with a further puzzle for us, he was awarded the University medal for research. There was more to our son than met the eye.
