Every student that has passed through the hallowed halls of The Healing Arts Center knows Dr. Dan Rovin, DC (known to all as "Dr. Dan"). There is no way to make it through anatomy and physiology at HAC without being exposed to Dr. Dan's often lively sense of humor. Friday evening, the good doctor's students were given a special treat as one of their favorite instructors showed up for class on the day before Halloween dressed as HAC president, Dave Kenyon.
The costume took no small measure of preparation. First, Dan had to grow out his hair to a short stubble (he normally shaves his head). Next, the normally clean-shaven chiropractor grew a goatee a week or so in advance to conceal the fact that he was actually growing a mustache and soul patch like the one Kenyon wears. On Thursday, everyone in school noticed the beard as a new look, but on Friday the devious doctor shaved the beard to reveal his true intention.
By adding a "cheerful pastel" shirt, round glasses, faded jeans, an overly formal suit jacket and rubber toed shoes, his costume was almost complete. There was just one thing missing. Dr. Dan is an avid soccer player and is in very good shape down to his six-pack abs while Kenyon goes for a full quarter barrel in the abdominal department. When a staff member suggested at a faculty meeting that Dan should have stuffed his shirt, Dan graciously noted that he only wanted to have fun and not be disrespectful to which Kenyon responded that the stuffed shirt would be hilarious. Dan, never to be one to miss an opportunity to advance the cause of mirth, added to his costume by the time his 6 pm class started.
The students were in stitches.
Dan was fired Friday evening and is now looking for gainful employment elsewhere. (Not really.) True to his word, Kenyon found the costume to be very funny and took the time come to class and show the students how complete the charade really was. Meanwhile, the bookstore staff reports that a meditation cushion is missing from the store.
Happy Halloween from all of us at HAC!
