My friend, Bob is much different than anyone I know in Roman. I'd have to say some of my friends from Roman would probably think Bob is a hick because of his rural background, but he's smarter than just about all of them. I met Bob's stuff before I met him. Upon entering the dorm room, I found his guitar and amplifier, along with a pair of muddy boots. After meeting him, I learned that Bob is from a rural community about twenty miles outside a major city. He comes from a fifth-generation farming family. At his high school, only a small percentage of the students continued their education at a college or university. He is good with his hands, but surprisingly, he is also an excellent public speaker, which I admire because I have always been rather shy.
