Prequel to RG’s New Educational Circumstances (Maybe)
December 22, 2008
This is a major denouement to my story about RG and her trip with Grandpa to the zoo.
To provide a little context for current events, I now need to go back into time to April when Random Granddaughter was rejected by Harvard. I first told this story in a private blog I operated for a while, but then stopped using. Mostly I was talking about unhappy events in my job, a job from which I retire at the end of January. However, I also talked about some touchy issues involving RG and her preschools and her rejection by Harvard.
Events seem to be changing, and as is frequently a case in my life, I am experiencing irony poisoning.
I will quote some excerpts from my other blog, posted in April of 2008. In my usual irritating fashion, it will take a little while to rejoin the present.
I begin with some ancient history regarding my daughter’s early schooling.
The retrospective prequel will take up five chapters:
Part 1: My daughter and the school for very bright children (SVBC).
Part 2: My daughter’s partner and the SVBC.
Part 3: RG’s Rejection by the SVBC.
Part 4: An ironic parallel with my daughter’s rejection by a graduate school followed by her acceptance after studying calculus through distance learning.
Then there will be two interludes:
Part 5: Dental torture inflicted on my daughter.
Part 6: The big West Coast snow storm of December 2008.
This will irritate you for about a week. At that point, I will tell you about the new circumstances (maybe) of RG’s educational career.
