I wish they weren’t so dramatic

When I graduated  college, I had more than just a diploma in our hand.  Josh put a ring in our hand as I walked by him. I don’t think if I was crying or laughing.  I just think that when they called our name, I yelled yeah. The teacher just stared at me until I opened our hand and showed him the diamond.  He gave me a hug and said congratulations for both. When graduation was over, I ran to our parents and gave them hugs. Mom said he wanted to see and I showed him the diploma.  He told me he wanted to see the other thing. It seemed that all the people knew about the ring, but me. My Mom was joking that now he had a Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech in the family.  I don’t think if you could call Josh a Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech, even though he was sure was on his way to being a Heating, Ventilation and A/C designer. His air conditioning design had won him honors when he graduated, but they were still not working the bugs out of the design.  He thinks they will have to scrap his original air conditioning design and beginning now working from the beginning. The concept for an air conditioning that didn’t need electricity, was good, but it needed a lot of job to be usable in more than a small individual unit. I think that some afternoon he will have a unbelievable name in the Heating, Ventilation and A/C business.  We have the rest of our lives for it to be a household name. In the meantime, Mom is right, they do have a Heating, Ventilation and A/C professional in the family.
