The fact that he's cooking at all puts him head and shoulders above most teens. Also, I laughed out loud at "Amanda is normal."

He'll be 22 this year, actually. He lived on his own for 2 years at college in an off campus apartment with one roommate. He can cook. And it's not a big mess, just sink full of pans. I get up early and don't want to have to clean his mess up before I can cook my food.

No big deal at all. I'll gladly do dishes to have daily contact and influence.

He's easy to get along with. Should be easy.

Did he quit school, or school quit him, or taking time off?

A little of a, a little of c.

Widener doesn't have a very deep chemistry program, and he didn't want to do the type of chemistry course the program offered. He took it anyway and failed, re-took and withdrew when it became apparent that he just didn't get the math. Differential equations or something. I think he's going to go to Temple when things open back up.

He could get Walter White to tutor him and support you in style.

Not so very yay. Work is going to suck for a while.

Will auto sales jump back to (the previous) normal with a quickness, do ya think, or will it be a more gradual thing? Or will sales get back to normal?

No idea. Might be some pent up business out there... I just mean there's going to be a lot more remote deals and even when they do come in, it'll be hard to read faces with the masks on.

Pete's making me a mask with a clear soft plastic panel so my short people can see my mouth. I'm not sure if it will make things better or worse.
