Before mine went off to college for the first time, I wrote him a letter. I figured he'd NEVER hear the advice I had to give, so I made him read it, in the hopes that somehow it would sink in.

And as for the blase attitude? It's all bravado, because just today mine informed me that at this time last year he was freaking out. Which stunned me, because last year at this time, while I was freaking out, he was playing it cool, and I never even realized that he was losing it.
