Parker is from Hawaii but he lives in Berlin. As one does, he’s getting a PhD in philosophy. He’s a thinking man.
More important than being a thinking man, Parker knows how to work a nautical sleeve. And a headband. Sometimes we try to wear a headband but it hurts that little area behind our ears. Parker looks like he’s doing alright though.
Now, we at Fine Bagels like some good hand-talking and gesticulating. Parker did both while he explained to us what Modus Ponens is good for. That was not an unsolicited explanation.
The thing about Parker is that beyond giving belated meaning to a whole brutal week of 9th grade geometry where we forayed into logic, Parker matched. Now, we love matching. But Parker really matched. Parker matched everything. Parker matched his cotton button-up to his Everyman edition of The Brothers Karamazov to his “Oma’s Garten” fruit tea. Look at that. Remarkable.
