Not About Allston
Miss Grimke: Too bad you don't qualify for the early retirement package.
DGF: I am not interested in throwing in the towel yet, at any rate.
Miss Grimke: Some people say there has been a lot of wasteful spending at the World's Richest University and you need to cut back on the perks, like Champagne. I'm appalled.
DGF: Any large institution is going to have areas where money could have been spent more wisely or should not have been spent at all. We are taking a close look at everything.
Miss Grimke: But cut back on Champagne? That would be a huge huge loss.
DGF: How's it going, your work with Trader Joe's on the sparkling Chuque?
Miss Grimke: Slowly, slowly, somewhat like the construction in Allston.
DGF: Please don't start with the Allston bit again. It ceases to amuse me.
Miss Grimke: I hear the Allston rats are starting to wear little red hoodies that say "Harvard University."
DGF: Again with the not listening to me.
Miss Grimke: How about this: Dr. Faust goes pantless to draw attention to the need to cut back on expenses.
DGF: Now I remember. This is a fashion blog. I'm always pantless under my robe.
