The next big life cycle event the professor got to partake in was my high school graduation! The weekend before we had my grad party-- which had a lot of people neither of us knew! He just sat back and enjoyed a beer!
On the day of my graduation, he came along, loving academic events such as this. The whole car ride there he waxed poetic, remembering fondly his own graduation, and the valedictorian speech he gave. He just happened to remember it, and gave it for me, to get me inspired and in the mood to graduate!
The Professor enjoyed a very exciting Memorial Day weekend, but instead of a Bar-b-q we had a Bar-Mitzvah! =]
He was very proud that he already had a tux on to look nice for my little brother's big day, and even got some pictures with him up on the Bimah before the services. He enjoyed examining the Hebrew, and decided he should learn it when he has some free time. He just never stops learning, that one!
After the service, he enjoyed some good Jewish food, and then hung out with some good Jews. My little cousin Hannah took up a particular fondness for him, and they hung out all weekend! We went to the Water Park of America that Sunday, but he stayed nice and dry, lounging in a beach chair and reading The Alchemist.
Professor Linus enjoyed a hot summer day exploring Uptown Minneapolis!
He met some very academic rabbits at Urban Outfitters (you can tell they're intellectual because of the mustaches!) He walked around Calhun square, the bustling center of uptown, taking in all the sights, like the cool old Uptown Theature. We spotted a hipster couple with matching watermelon colored bikes. How cute! We walked down by the lake where it was cooler, and took in the amazing view!
