During the last few months of his senior year of highschool, Greg, unfocused and uncaring about college and career, looks onlyas far into the future as prom night. Although his parents encourage highereducation, Greg prefers daydreaming (“trippin’”) to becoming responsible.His daydreams are mostly sexual in nature. However, he also fantasizesabout violently subduing his enemies. Eventually, Greg applies for college,is accepted, and wins the girls of his dreams (Maia) at the senior prom.
