It was lunchtime at Humboldt State University. The campus was surrounded by immense redwood trees. The Dream Goatz dj-ed in the quad. A few dozen people stopped to watch and listen to the discordant noises good humouredly.
Ali and this guy were soliciting students to be part of the Snow Jacks, the school ski club. ”We’ll ski with you and then sleep with you!”, they hollered in between Dream Goatz songs. Students stopped timidly by the desk to submit their email addresses. 7 of us formed a circle and threw the frisbee around, sneaking throws in between class-bound traffic. The lead singer took off his shirt and bounced on his toes while the DJ, wearing a cardboard mask, slapped the equipment with his feet. It was nice to be in college again, if only temporarily.
