So. Maria started college with me in the early 90s. She had to take a break for a few years, then eventually made her way back to school, worked her ass off, and graduated in 2003. For some reason, there was a kerfuffle that wasn’t a kerfuffle but she still ended up not getting her diploma.
Until today. A quick visit to the University registrar, where her diploma was rescued from the safe where it’s been waiting all this time.
