- I acknowledge the calendar says he's 16.
- I know he is a junior in high school.
- I realize he's taking classes with titles like physics and trigonometry.
I'll tell you what smacks it in your face, though. Two weeks ago, he ordered his class ring. Ouch.
Last week, his first college recruitment pamphlet arrived in the mail. Gulp.
Watch out, world. Ready or not, here he comes.
