Seeing a dude in assless chaps nonchalantly walk up and sign a DADT repeal petition a few feet away from me totally blew my newly post-high school mind. Everything there was looked at with fascination and wide-eyed wonderment, though also peppered with the feeling that I, an awkward and punkish shy kid with a fear of crowds and preference of books to dancing, might not belong here.
