Borrowing a degree

My guy and I can practically talk about anything. I don't think that we have stumbled across a topic in which we have steered clear of discussing.

We are educated folks. Between the two of us, we have a ridiculous number of degrees. My guy was and still is an overachiever. I fit in the same realm, except that I do not have a doctorate.

We talked about whether we'd like to teach at a university. We both like that idea, but would ease into it by teaching a course a semester. The problem is finding a course to teach. The demand to teach a sessional course is high.

We then had this conversation:
"Can I borrow your PhD?" I asked him.
"Sure, if you want to change your name to mine," he said.
"I can do that. I'd also have to take testosterone pills to get my voice down a couple of octaves and tell horrible jokes," I joked.
"Oh, man," he said, laughing.
"Well, I think I have mastered telling horrible jokes, so I just have to worry about more cosmetic things," I said, smiling.
It's far more fun to borrow a degree than it is to slave over research for five years and be broke!


  1. LOL, it's always nice knowing you can chat about anything and everything isn't it? IT wasn't always so with some of my exes, but I'm glad i have that with BIKSS too! BTW Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Yay! It definitely is great to be able to chat about anything under the sun or moon. =)

      I enjoy your blog. I may not comment as often as I'd like, but I'm there in spirit when I don't!

  2. I do enjoy your conversations, CB. You'll have to let us if you decide to teach a course. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Will do! I found one course, but I have to get my resume in order.
