Agathon is portrayed by Plato as a handsome young man, well dressed, and of polished manners. Since these features appealed the young frog’s parents, they named him —Agathon.
Of course, they enrolled him in the most progressive daycare, and thereafter in the most expensive schools. The bright amphibian graduated with a degree in Flower-Arrangement and and Comparative Philosophy—Cum Laude, you understand—
which made him completely unemployable. He lived with his parents, who had signed for his trillion dollar student loan, until they lost their beautiful house by the lake. For a while he crashed on couches in friends’ living rooms. To escape debt-collectors, he’s let his hair grow long and now lives in a drain-pipe under Bright Street.
