Back to school

From "College in the 40s," by Michael Bracken, who went back to college at 42 and will graduate at 48:

While my son speeds through college without stopping for marriage, children and career, I relish the few advantages of being a college student at my age. I especially enjoy the reaction at the local multiplex when I request the "student discount," and my wife takes great pleasure in telling people that she sleeps with a college student.
