Uh, I'm not sure but I may have arrived. You see I received a very special award from Jerry Rushford at last year's Pepperdine Lectures. Being me, I told my 10:00 a.m. class on Friday that I had to leave immediately after class to receive my Honorary PhD from Jerry at the 11:00 o'clock hour. (I knew I was only to have the opening prayer but.....well maybe I embellished it a bit?)
When I got the the 11:00 keynote Jerry presented me with such an honoring award. Upon receiving it in shock, I told the entire audience (laughing of course) that I thought I was receiving my Honorary PhD. Darryl Tippens commented immediately following my comments that if I wanted such an honorary degree I was to see him; not Jerry Rushford, that Rushford only directed the lectures.
Well...THIS WEEK...I received a letter from Pepperdine. The envelope is addressed to "Dr. Terry Rush".
I take this as an omen. Although the contents of the letter don't need to be discussed here (okay, it had my housing assignment), I must say I believe I am in for some sort of surprise honor next week. I want all of my friends (both of you) to hang around because I feel certain Jerry Rushford or Darryl Tippens has something special they want to present me.
Now I'm trying to decide what to wear, where to sit, and whether to have a press conference afterward.
