- Sheldon, you're being ridiculous.
Am I? Let me tell you a story. Where's 70 children when you need them? I was 14 and graduating summa cum laude from college. "Summa cum laude" is Latin for "with highest honors".
I just love how you always skip over the part where no one asks.
I was valedictorian and expected to give an address. Even now I can remember that moment when I walked up to the podium and looked out at the crowd. There must have been thousands of people. My heart started pounding in my chest. I began to hyperventilate. My vision became blurry, and before I knew it... Oh, dear.
