<< “…Where nobody’s dream comes true”. >>
The IHOP there was kind of like a dream-come-true Sunday mornings, after a
week of Gypsy Wagon fare & late-night vending machine crap on campus. A
time when local art consisted of human chalk outlines on sidewalks next to
tall buildings. My favorite was the outline of an entire family holding
hands forming a circle around a tree. Ephemera that the janitors had to
scrub away before anybody saw it. Truly lost art. Never got caught, though.
