What's a degree?

A conversation over dinner this evening:
Hayden: "Daddy, why are you in college?"
Daddy: "Well, I'm trying to get my degree."
Hayden: "What's a degree?" (It's always the easy questions for him. I get questions like, "What makes a rock hard?")
Daddy: "A degree is something you get after you finish school that makes you an expert in that subject. Like, if you're going to be a teacher or a lawyer, you become an expert in that by learning all you can about it."
Hayden: "What are you going to expert in?"
Daddy: "Finance and Business."
Hayden: "Hmmmm....okay."
About five minutes later:
Hayden: "I'm gonna expert in superhero."
I love his ambition!

That is one of the funniest things I have ever heard! That's why it took me almost 10 years to earn my degree... I kept waiting for them of offer Superhero at JSU!

I think he's on to something. I'm going to send his suggestion to Dr. Meehan and see what becomes of it! ;)
