POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE

            “We’re graduated,” said Diane cradling her diploma. “Let’s go celebrate.”

            “Not tonight, Miss Valedictorian,” I said. “I’m bushed.”

            “Aw, Mike, don’t be such a stick-in-the-mud.”

            “Tomorrow.”

            “Now.”

            “I’ll tell Diane next time I visit her grave.”
