posir10:28pm: the best quotes recently are coming from my American Radicalism class.

(picture the student - Andrew - as a twentysomething male college kid, and John - the teacher - as a 55-60 year old laid back old hippie with a beer belly and ponytail)

Andrew: *raises hand* You know, John- that new book by Tom Brokaw- The Greatest Generation - that book just really pisses me off. *pause* I didn't read it or anything, but, you know.

later:

Andrew: I just think that your generation needs to, you know, not just pass the burden of "saving the world" or whatever, onto OUR generation. I mean, you have to get off your lazy old asses and help us too.

John: Andrew, we already gave you classic rock. What the fuck else could you possibly want?


:D

sweetscorpion1:45pm: Not Quite Finished
Phone conversation in the office cafeteria lunch room. Apparently she was trying to be secretive…but the giggles kind of give it away.

“….it just didn’t finish. Heh heh…..No, you know, it didn’t exactly FINISH”

Awkward laughter

“umm…I can’t realy say right now…..be more specific in your guessing……no something with a c……..now that is what didn’t finish.”

More giggling

“mmmm hmmmm….I KNOW….hee hee….I really can’t say it right now”

All communicated with the assistance of a cellular device and headset….even though both hands WERE free……..
