I lived in Lafayette, Indiana on 3 seperate occasions. Altogether I lived there for 6.5 years. For most of those 6.5 years I wondered: what in the world does THAT t-shirt slogan mean? (go ugly early) I found out that it was Harry's pub's way of encouraging college students to come into the pub and start drinking early. I never cared for the slogan, none the less, when i saw a man in the baltimore library today with the t-shirt, i had to speak up!
"I haven't seen that slogan since I lived in Indiana!" I exclaimed.
"I went to Purdue U." the man replied.
"Wow!" "Me too, what class are you?"
"class of 04 he exclaimed" (perhaps we passed each other in that small town since i did live there from 03 to 05)
"What's your degree in, and did it serve you well?"
"This degree, (pointing to the pub logo on his shirt!) served me well!"
"You know what I miss about Indiana?"
"Not having to watch my back constantly,,,,,,,,,,,,soo safe!" I exclaimed.
"You got that right" he said. I asked him how he's adapting to that aspect of things. "I'm adapting, but it's like night and day with the crime thing"
"Yup" I said.
"Well, have a good one" I said.
"Yes, you too and good luck with everything" he replied.
