U of U graduate body found in a million billion pieces

My phone rings today, it's BD. I pick up.

BD: I don't think you understand.
Wifey: What?
BD: No, seriously. I don't think you understand.

And then it clicks. He must be walking somewhere in public, most likely on campus, because he is obviously exercising some seriously powerful built-up restraint in his voice and overall demeanor. I can tell he's about to explode.

Wifey: Oh. That. (chuckle) Yes, actually I think I do understand. It happened to me 3 years ago, b-member? Congratulations.

He's practically quivering now. And stuttered through his personal realization of what has just occured.

BD: I just finished my last undergraduate...anything! And it feels soooooooo good.

And then he did in fact explode.

Congrats BD. That is a good feeling. I had the same thing happen a few months ago. I finished up my last final on a Sat. morning. I was driving home and started yelling, punching the steering wheel and almost crying because it felt so good. I may have looked like a moron, but could care less what anyone else thought.

Congrats Brad! I hope you've got some major celebrating in. I can't say I understand that feeling either... Way over my head.

Yay Brad! I, myself have never had that feeling, but I do know that it is also a very special feeling for the wife to know her husband won't be cranky about stupid generals and the like anymore, so congrats to you too Gina!
