Yuko and I attended Conrad's graduation, and in keeping with the way Conrad does business, he made it pretty entertaining. Conrad stepped onto that stage to Walk and, as if he knew that he was at the center of attention up on the gigantic jumbotron hanging from the ceiling, gave a grinning double thumbs up to all five hundred people in the audience. Then he lit an imaginary cigarette, gave a long pull, and blew four years worth of college up at the gymnasium ceiling. All five hundred people laughed.

I graduated in 2005, and I did it all wrong.
I only walked for my college ceremony, and I showed up in a polo and jeans, which was a mistake. Row upon row of guys in dress shirts and girls in slender dresses made me nervous, so I threw on the graduation gown and pulled the neck up as high as I could. I'd never graduated from college before, what the hell did I know?
