And here's what he wrote in a friend's yearbook...apparently he was known as "Barry" to his friends! Somehow I have a hard time seeing him as a "Barry".

(As an aside, it appears he's calling his female friend "sweat"...meaning "sweet"...but could just be the handwriting. Remember: Don't sweat the small stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff.)
