She attended Carleton College (of liberal arts), 
I attended Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science. 

She studied Shakespeare and never forgot it, 
I studied thermodynamics and forgot it for lack of use. 

She learned about the Greek gods — Athena, Poseidon and others, 
I learned about Greek mathematician Pythagoras (at least his theorem). 

She tromped the hills and national parks of U.S. and Europe, 
I tromped the hills of Kansas and the Ardennes Forest. 

She described thousands of birds of prey, 
I abstracted thousands of U.S. patents. 

She became a professional writer and documentary producer, 
I became a patent agent and an amateur newsletter editor.

SOUNDS LIKE A PERFECT MATCH TO ME; LET’S GIVE IT A TRY.
