    "I live in NYC and was walking home from work. Right about 40th St., this voice -- haunting, familiar, delicately nasal -- floats in the air next to me. I know this voice like I know my own. Who could it be? An old college friend? A former high school classmate? An ex-lover, perhaps? I turn to face the voice -- it's Arvid [Dan Frischman] of Head of the Class fame! He looked like he was at least in his mid-thirties, dressed truly dorky (comfortable shoes, ill-cut -- but not too short -- tan pants, bland polo shirt), as opposed to the heightened TV version of dorky (a la Steve Urkel). He was talking about -- get this! -- how many squats he did in the gym that day." (Posted: January 1999)
