FAYETTEVILLE – Local Arkansas 23 year old Krystal Hughes, a recent recipient of a general education diploma, decided this morning that she “had better pass on gettin’ these.” Hughes had spent “the last two years or so” studying for her high school equivalency certificate and felt that her new found accomplishment was sufficient enough to justify her declining purchase of a set of educational books for her 3 year old and 1 year old.
“Well it’s different now being a graduate. I take ’em playin’ outside a whole bunch, and we talk about what we see and all. The oldest one, he points and stuff, and we say what it is; I think that’s probably what they need, you know,” explained Hughes when asked by reporters as to why she chose to pass on the purchase.
Jordan Kessler, the 2nd summer Dealer from South Carolina, explained that the only reason he had knocked on Hughes’ door was “because no one had been home lately and her trailer had a bunch of toys in the yard and the door was standing open.”
