What is life? 
 
The first day of university our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.
    I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being. She said, “Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?” I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant one.
    “Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked.
    She jokingly replied, “I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids....”
    “No seriously,” I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.
