Calamitous commencement
By MIKE MILIARD  |  May 10, 2006

* Ask Dad if your new friends from the Pit, Crusty and Smeg, can come with you to dinner at Upstairs on the Square.

* When the nice sweaty man outside Fenway asks Dad if he needs tickets, see what he’s got for field-box seats in the $20–$25 range.

* Give your folks a tour of the house on Glenville Ave where you buy all your pot.

* Help Nana, her walker, Grandpa, and his oxygen tank up the broken escalator in the Davis Square T station.

* Go used-mattress hunting on the sidewalks of Allston/Brighton.

* Take sis out for some action at the MIT nerd frats.

* Pile the extended family onto the B Line for a leisurely tour of historic Comm Ave.

* Treat your parents to a relaxing, postprandial digestif at Mary Ann’s.

* Expect that Mitt Romney will give a commencement address anywhere other than Iowa.
