about this story

Used to be mystified, fascinated by the things that are officially designated more fun than other things. "Parties": birthdays, donkey pail tong if you're a kid, then showers and people's aunts and games, brownies, lemon squares, fizzy drinks and highpitched brain squeal. and crumplehold one end tight and run your fingernail along it, you bump past little ridges, train tracks.) Let's draw the curtain of charity over college, the liquid-volume-to-alcohol calculation. You talk to people's parents and someone finds you a job in the tourism industry, telling stories to people on a bus, and eventually you get tired of that and spend more of your time writing on websites about packing and jet-lag advice. But it's still odd, isn't it, the things people do because (as DFW said) it's supposed to be fun, as if everyone would find the same thing fun, like intentionally losing money according to an organized set of rules. Which is why after the Vegas gig, you're thinking maybe it'll be time for Gerontological Nursing.
