Degree

via Daily Prompt: Degree

So, you have a degree says the snarly-faced woman, who is looking my body up and down and doesn’t like it
It came out in conversation because sometimes I brag a little about what brought me to this country where the immigrants sometimes land the jobs with a well-earned degree
I just say that I came here to study and sometimes this calms the situation because what a terrible thing if a foreign woman came here who has the body of a runner and also earned a PhD
That is a degree too far.

I am a published author. I was born in England and now live in the United States! I have a PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. In my spare time, I like to run.
