This story took place back in 1978 when I was a senior at a two-year college in upstate New York. I lived off campus at the time, and it was my last weekend. It was Saturday afternoon, and I was to graduate the next day in the afternoon. My parents were to be arriving tomorrow morning. The parents of my roommates were here already, and they were out doing some of the night-before activities. They had invited me along, but I declined, since I was to go to a party later in the evening.
