DENIS TURNS 44
(Bennington College class of 1987, featuring me and my old pal Denis.)
When I said I wanted to go to Bennington, a college without grades, exams, frats, sports, inhibitions or very many men, my dad said "why would you want to go to that crazy school for rich girls?" or maybe it was "why would you want to go to that school for crazy rich girls?". Well, it was and is a school for crazy rich girls, and the answer lies in the question: what young man wouldn't want to go to a school for crazy rich girls? Denis felt the same way, and we met 25 years ago as freshmen in Leigh house, two little weenies amongst a few other freshman boy weenies. Time flies, eh? Here's our graduation picture, 21 years ago, and there were around 80 graduates that year, half my life ago!
The point here,of course, is to point out my old pal Denis at my side here. Today Denis turns 44, so this Bud's for you, Big D.
