Elly's Bullshit Sword of Damocles.....

Now that it looks like Jim is about to pass on, let's discuss his cheif reget: the fact that his daughter never finished university before she got married. As far as I know, he's about to go to his reward with a degreeless daughter and the fact depressed him. As we've seen, she seems to hold that little fact against April, that if she hadn't had a child at roughly forty she could have got the degree she wanted and made everyone happy. The problem, as cookie_77 pointed out, is that her whining is insincere. We saw try for her degree again and decide that it was not for her. Simple as paper, she never really wanted a degree to begin with. What she wanted was pretty much what she has: a part-time job at a bookstore. The degree is just an excuse so she can make April feel bad for preventing her mother from living a dream she didn't actually have.
