The Boy Next Door

Remember the boy next door? What was his name? Brian Gerdes. Yeah, Brian of the failed rocket experiments that one summer, the year of no bathing when he was 12, the face full of braces through junior high, the cracked voice and zits and obsession about the Cure, the oil-leaking Corolla parked in his parent’s driveway. Boy, you haven’t seen him in years. Yet there he is, pulling up in his Saab this holiday in the neighbors’ driveway, alone, looking utterly changed and fantastic.

You never thought Brian knew anything about fashion. That leather jacket from hiwinyu Fazuku is clearly made of some expensive animal skin with its soft buttery textures. The details are spectacular with its double-breasted tailoring, military cuffs and epaulets and gorgeous buttoned vent in back. Underneath a vest is buttoned over an uncommonly beautiful black silk shirt with a great ascot. A scarf is thrown around his neck. What has happened to the gawky, dorky Brian you once knew?

He sports a rugged handsome look thanks to Tricky Boucher. Now that Brian has grown up and shed the braces, he’s pretty darn tasty. You remember how his father would give him a buzz cut in the back yard every Memorial Day weekend and again at Halloween. He has clearly outgrown that style with his long curly locks from chiaki Xue. Your fingers tingle at the thought of touching it. Brian’s all grown up!

How are you going to manage to get next door to talk to him? Just make yourself look all delicious and grab a plate of Mom’s cookies to take over to Mrs. Gerdes….
