The Dorm Life

BEER!

BEER!

Another gem. This was taken in the fall of 1990 in my dorm room at Kent State. Of course, many many college mini-fridges looked exactly like this and still do today, I would guess. But for those of us who were in college in the early 1990’s, who could forget when Keystone burst on the scene!? They had a marketing BLITZ and they claimed to have some special can that kept the beer COLDER for LONGER! And it was CHEAP! Well, all of us fell for it and I bet you did too. I don’t even know if they still make Keystone (I think they do) anymore, but it was not great beer. Still, it was cheap! Anyway, my absolute favorite part of this picture isn’t that my dorm fridge is FULL of beer, it’s that it’s full of beer and one single jar of Miracle Whip. There’s no bread, no cold cuts, no food whatsoever. But there’s Miracle Whip. I guess that’s in case some bread and sliced turkey ever made its way into my room, I suppose. Funny.
