Scenes from University

 Ethan wanted to be a success like his grandfather had been but to be honest, it had taken a push from his big brother to get him out the door. Getting tired of the constant greedy whining Allan declared an ultimatum, "You enroll in University or you can sleep outside! We don't have room for you or for a new computer!"
 Seeing the situation for what it was, Ethan raced like a man possessed and got himself enrolled in med school. He wanted to make a good impression on his first day so he got there two hours early.
 At a buddy's mixer he pulled out all the stops and got to networking. Not being all that charismatic he made a terrible faux pas while talking to one of the most respected phys. ed students around. The ensuing carnage was frightful.
 Then there was that day that someone left the WMD unlocked and Ethan's curiosity got the better of him. Again, the carnage was unspeakable.
 He knew it was better to focus on his studies and not on insulting jocks or setting the world on fire. During a phone call home he mentioned how rough it was; studying diseases, anatomy, redheads, blondes... but he knew he had to persevere if he was to succeed.
The news that Ethan was doing so well filled Allan with delight and hope for the future. He decided a compromise was in order. When Ethan got home for Winter Break he found something special by the TV. Overjoyed by this step into the 21st Century Ethan grabbed a controller and joined Willie for a few hours on the couch.
