Today's Featured Biography

 

 
David McGrath


The occasion of our 50th reunion puts me in mind of the graduation many years ago.

Having had no specific plans to attend college, I spent May of my senior year cutting classes, hanging out in Gerald Topel's basement, and drinking his father’s Budweiser. I spent the remainder of each day, watching the Michau brothers on the next block, tinker with the engines of their Chevies.

The week before the graduation day, my parents were visiting Uncle Eddie in Florida, which enabled me to ditch all the graduation practices. On the day of commencement, I had no robes and no idea where I was supposed to line up.

A student line monitor was kind enough to procure for me a spare graduation gown, after which I found Topel in the rear of the throng in the gymnasium, and slipped in front of him in the line.

Instead of marching to the stage as No. 22, with my gold tassel, I watched as a pretty No. 21 accepted her diploma, followed by NOBODY (supposed to be me), and then by another female, No. 23, thinking all the while how I could have been sandwiched between those two sweet smelling lovelies, instead of sharing a lukewarm can of beer that Topel had secreted in some unthinkable place beneath his gown.

It was all forgotten come August, when my friend Tom Booth and his brother John invited me along for a Canadian wilderness fishing trip with their uncle. I was nuts for such a trip, and I went to the library to get every book ever published on the voyageurs and their historic Ontario adventures, and on wilderness fishing in the bush country of Canada. I also loaded up on all the overtime hours I could as a bag boy, in order to earn enough cash for the two week adventure.

Meanwhile, my sister Rosie pointed out to me that registration for the college that I was considering attending was taking place during the time I’d be gone. I said something like, “Big deal—this trip is way more important.”

And it was. I learned at the tender age of 18 that traveling into the woods and out of reach of civilization with a red bearded man whom I’d never met, was not the wisest idea. Tom’s uncle turned out to be the last adult you’d ever want to be marooned with. And I’m not referring only to the giant sombrero he wore while singing “Fare Thee Well, I’m On My Way,” at the top of his lungs, the day we encountered a traveling party of teenage girls on one of the portages. For there was also that other pesky detail—his insistence that we bathe naked each day, “just like the fur trappers in days of yore.”

One day when Trapper Red donned his birthday suit and dove under water, the three of us seriously considered holding him under and ending our humiliation. We would have, too, had any of us known the way back.

When we did get back to civilization, I learned that Rosie had driven to the university, registered for me, paid my tuition, filled out my schedule, and acquired all my books. I said something like, “Thanks, Rosie, maybe I’ll see if I like it,” and thus began my college career.

There is absolutely no constructive theme in this memoir that I know of. Except maybe that I still dislike Budweiser.
