The other day I ran into a high school acquaintance.

This is always nerve-wracking.  I was kind of a loser in high school.

She was nice, though.  She was like:

“I saw you on campus the other day.”

And I was like:

“O rlly?  We shoulda said hai!”

And she was like:

“You were talking to yourself.”

And I was like:

And she said:

” A lot.”
And I was like:

And she was like:

“Your hands were moving and stuff.”

And I was like:

“Let’s talk about something else!”

Isn’t it nice to know that some things never change??
