Colleen was thrilled.
After weeks of patiently waiting, it had finally arrived in the mail: The Fall Course Catalogue for the Obsolete Correspondence School.
She thumbed through the pages, each available course of study looking more enticing than the last. By the time she was just about through looking at all of the entries, Colleen had pretty much made up her mind. She was going to major in Telegraph Operation with a minor in VHS Tape Rewinder Repair.
But then on the back page, she noticed the announcement for the fall semester’s new offering: The Cobbler’s Apprentice Program, which looked AMAZING.
So many choices. Colleen had to really think about it, and she decided she needed some advice. So she got out her HAM radio to see if there was anyone else on the airwaves registering for OCS, and if so, what classes they were thinking of taking.
But don’t get the wrong idea–she wasn’t totally living through outdated technology. She sent messages to her MySpace friends asking them what they thought, too.
