Last Sunday, we took my son Josh, over to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA to begin his first year of college there. What a place! After spending the day there for Parents Orientation, we are all convinced this is the right place for Josh to study. Josh is in his element amidst a highly studious and intelligent group of students, and institution that highly values learning, hard work, and passion. That boy will soar in such an environment. I am so excited for him, and a little envious of what his future holds.
Today we were talking on the cell phone when he mentioned that he had to get off because his laundry was done. Soon after, I received the following email:
Why does the washer email you when it’s done? Why do you get an email when a package arrives? Because we’re CMU.

Your laundry is finished. Please pick up your laundry from Washer 3 in XXXXX House Laundry Room.
And what’s even more amazing is that my son is doing his laundry a mere five days after his arrival on campus.
