Mrs. Linklater's All Purpose Graduation Speech

Students, parents, distinguished faculty. Thank you for this opportunity to address the graduating class of 2005. 

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  Or, you can wait until tomorrow like you usually do.

Now is the time to take stock.  Now is the time to take the lessons you have learned and put them to good use. 

Now is the time to try your wings. Expand your horizons. Live the life you've dreamed.  Explore the unknown.

And now, if I may be so bold, is the best time to turn to your parents with the answer to the unasked question:

When will you be moving out?

Thank you.  And may the thought of not sucking off the parental tit any longer fill your heart with joy.

Don't the loan payments constitute long distance lactation? And don't do it in public...some people get upset.
