  1. Jesus Q Christ! I’m 50 years old and this piece gberbad me by the back of my collar and yanked me back 30 years!The description of the guy apartment took me to Bob’s, where there were more cords than there really oughta be anywhere. The bathroom was disgusting, but the beer was plentiful, the music was Motown or reggae and Bob was always generous with weed. Many a spur-of-the-moment 3 am bass fishing trip was born at Bob’s. I miss Bob.The description of the girl apartment makes me think you were looking in my windows in 1981. The alpha girl was Clara, the hey, gal-pals! let’s decorate with scarves and Mardi Gras beads! girl was Eileen. I just kept my head down, paid my share of rent and utilities and tried to organize little things like bins and in-out boxes for mail and messages. Clara and I were nodding acquaintances in high school but didn’t have much in common until we both discovered that while Eileen was tolerable in small doses in social settings, we loathed living in the same house with her. Eileen would eat an entire bag of chocolate chips and then say, I didn’t know you planned to do anything with them! I do not miss Eileen.
