And who looks good in college? The years spent mending your persona to jive with your schedule of classes – living in a tree during the quarter you took Intro to Marxism, shaving your head and punching boys during your Fem Theory class, and sprinkling shrooms on your dining hall cuisine when you were enrolled in Drugs and Society were all good ideas at the time, but in hindsight, you probably looked like a turd while doing them.
I know I did. I went to college in the late 90s and looked like a hot mess for a large portion of that time. I was also chubby but didn’t know it. It was only after I graduated and was living in Japan that I showed a picture of myself to a Japanese person whose response was, “Hee hee. Ande-san, fat-o!” Thanks Ayumi-chan, that was six months ago. Bitch.
But not Barry. He kept it cool. Even with the fro and the post disco attire, he looks smooth, confident, able write a 10 page term paper on Aesthetic Epistomology in Modern Day Florida, then go out and get smashed with all his pals and end up back at your dorm room for the best one night stand ever. Swoon.
