2007 marked a beginning of sorts for me. I started college and took three classes last year. I became friends with a girl and she and I stuck together through the classes especially the last two.
The last class was Illustrator and as I am who I am I would talk to many in the class. We had one class left and I was talking to this dude who noted that I said my friend’s name. It became evident that he was intrigued by her but nothing to worry there was only one class left. I did, however, tease her that he was going to be in the next class (In Design) with us.
The In Design class started January 28th and my friend was disappointed that I had decided to take a break. We both voiced concern over the dude, who we will call Tater. Our concerns became justified the first day of class.
I was at home and happened to be on the computer when I got a sudden IM “dude. i need you in this class” and in a blink of the eye she was gone.
Ends up Tater picked a seat right next to her and even asked her out after class. On top of that it seems the Professor is a complete loon. Every time we talk I become more and more happy with my decision and she wishes she made the same decision.
Now that I’ve set this up here is the conversation we had today:
Graphic Goddess: i HATE HATE HATE this class.
Graphic Goddess: take it with the other Professor, save yourself
Red: oh yeah? I’m feeling very happy about my decision not to take a class this semester.
Graphic Goddess: yeah i would too. I want to shoot myself
Red: I’m sure Tater isn’t helping
Graphic Goddess: he asks me out every class
Red: really? what the hell?
Graphic Goddess: he’s always like – so you’re not going to let me buy you food?
and i say, nope
and he’s like, really?
and i’m like, yep
and then he hates me for a bit
he’s very grumpy
Red: then he tries again? He’s a brooding sort of guy
Graphic Goddess: yes he is. We don’t really get along very well
I always think he’s being an asshole and he’s well, always being an asshole
Red: you should bring in a framed photo of you and your boy and ask him his advice on the frame
Graphic Goddess: ha
Red: I love that you are very direct with him
Graphic Goddess: 🙂
Red: can I post this conversation? this is funny stuff
I’ll change his name to Tater. So what you want me to call you?
Graphic Goddess: sure. um…i don’t care. graphic goddess? 🙂
