It is hard to believe that 28 percent of adults over 31 have an advanced degree. Maybe that is just a bias of SOH users

MA, MS, MFT. Just about to start my PhD, then my dentist said I need $25,000 worth of work done! I didn't know that was even possible! And my teeth look and feel fine! But I guess I can work with addicts if I look like I have meth mouth one day! Ugh!

Oh is that what I was supposed to be working towards? My bad. Love college though. Just not enough to continue to go into debt for it. Like the former US president, I too am a C student.

I just find it funny that only 94% with a Masters and 93% with a Doctorate answered "Yes". Apparently we have some people with honorary degrees...

Undergrad degree. A few years ago I considered getting my MBA but my wife wanted one, so we paid for that one instead.

Either that or Dr. FooFoo. (I have a NIOSH sweatshirt with that printed on the back; a gift from lab mates when I graduated.)

Or, Dr. Sweetie, according to a boyfriend around the same time. That was in reply to a waitress who insisted on calling

me "Sweetie" about 20 times while serving us lunch. The under-his-breath comment was "That's *Dr.* Sweetie to you, honey."

In real life, only 2 other people have ever called me "Dr.": My proud dad, and one of my oncologists.

As in my little brother had trouble saying "Susan" and it came out "FooFoo." And stuck. Various members of my family have called me that all my life. Then my brother grew up, had kids, & told them to call me that. Then I made the mistake of telling

My grandmother got in my face when I was an infant. I said some baby gibberish to her and she declared, "She called me Gook!"

So, guess what name she got stuck with for the rest of her life, even into my adulthood? :)

Congrats, Dr. FooFoo!
