I worked my way through college, but her time was too valuable, being occupied by softball and beer pong and hustling pool. She did work for me summers, and now that she's graduated she works for us full time. The psychology degree works surprisingly well in marketing... and she's also managing our big materials-control-system redesign, and one programmer.

Beer pong is apparently good training for real life.
