So by now some of you readers may know that I went to the prestigious Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana for my undergrad. While I was there I bought a lot of booze at a place called Muncie Liquors. It was a magical place full of booze, and it got me aquatinted with three things that would shape my University experience: Rhinelander beer ( $6 for a case of longneck glass bottles), the liquor gift pack (supplier of shot glasses and bar towels, and Bubba, the man who sold me all of these things.
Bubba was maybe 10 years older than me, but relished selling beer and liquor to college students. He was a large man of both stature and heart, as he also worked with developmentally handicap young adults during the day.
