room and board

I received a medical bill from USC for 750 bucks, and at first I was like, what is this even for? What test or procedure or maybe just a charge for using a bathroom? Then I clicked, scrolled and discovered that 750 is actually one year’s room and board for our remaining frozen embryos. For a millisecond I thought WHAT A RACKET and then I realized, this is the cheapest dorm my children will ever live in. Nowhere, at least not in America, could they live for 62.50 a month. So I clicked and paid their rent, told them to go to their classes, like ALL Of them, and to not just eat the cereal at the dining hall. I told them I really hope to meet them someday, but maybe not all at once. I wished them patience, and warmth.
