Girls Will Rule the World

This morning I attended Social Animal's Senior Awards Breakfast. All the kids attending had achieved some sort of academic excellence for which they were being recognized with a huge variety of scholarships. It was actually amazing to watch what amounted to thousands of dollars being given out to about 50 kids. Social Animal received a Carol C. Gordon Scholarship for $400 and something called a Ralph's e-scrip Scholarship for $100. He was pleased to get a couple of checks...it made him feel that his hard work over the years was appreciated properly.

I found it interesting that the vast majority of scholarship winners were girls. Girls are the movers and shakers apparently. They actually had 17 valedictorians in the class and of those 17, 14 were girls. So, I am thinking that within the next generation, girls will rule the world.

It was that way when I was a kid too. Little boys are just distracted all the time. I am just hoping that competence and sanity will rule the world.
