As I’ve become more and more obsessed with Hamilton, the Kid has become more and more annoyed by him/it. (The man and the show.) Last night, this happened:


Me: Alexander Hamilton went to Columbia.

Kid: What?! I don’t want to go there anymore. …

It’s okay. I’ll go to Vassar.

Me: Um…do you know where the first ever performance of Hamilton the musical took place?

Kid: No!!! My college hopes are destroyed!



Sorry, Kid. There’s always Barnard. No boys allowed.
