This is how it went:
When Barry was 10 years old, he was grounded for a full month (in the summer, no less) for stabbing his brother in the hand with a pair of scissors. His mom had understood, due to a complete lack of accurate information, that the boys were fighting and that Barry, in his rage, lashed out at his younger brother. What had actually happened is that the boys, being young and stupid, were playing a game called “let’s throw Styrofoam into the air and cut it with scissors.” Years later, Barry learned that had his mom known it was an accident, his prison term would have been measured in days, instead of weeks. He has decided to be a better communicator ever since.
Besides his desire for efficient communication, Barry’s passions include learning, photography, hiking, spelunking, culinary adventures, ultimate Frisbee, building computers, and writing. He aspires to two things in life: grilling a perfect steak and marrying an incredible woman.
