There is a group of 3-4 freshman boys in my Psychology class. I say 3-4 because there are, in reality, 4 of them, but they are never all there at the same time. They are always good for a laugh.

Overheard today:

"Dude! I was talking to this girl the other day and she said she was going to have a different outfit for every day for a year!"
"Was she hot?"
"Naw, dude. She was fat."
(snicker, snicker)
"Man, an outfit every day...that's a lot of clothes! Dude, that's like...like...200 or somethin'...at least!"

I remember when I was in school as an adult with two kids.

Freshman were the funniest.

They rarely came to class and when they did, they were passed out on the tables.

Then when I got A's on our critiques or projects, they would mutter and gripe because the teacher liked me more.

HAH
I stayed up till 3 am working on them instead of partying.

i r a student too, and the younger, traditional students unlike myself, always make for interesting evesdropping or just plain people watching at my campus.
Ahhh, to be young again with no worries other than what parties are going on this weekend and how much beer can be shoveled down one's throat via beer bong.

Yeah, those were the days.

I have to tell you that this post scared me! I have a son who is a senior in high school and while I think he is responsible & intellegent, I am afraid that starting next year (the college years) he will be losing some brain cells fast and someone, somewhere will be posting about a conversation they over heard between my son & his friends. I think I'll ask him today if he knows how many days there are in one year!

people watching can be so very fun. Especially not so bright people watching.

if you want to be really scared, ask a much younger person how many states there are.... many will guess 52.

I knew people in high school (when I was there) who said 52. Or even 48.

dude!

fab post :D

I love it! Dude! That's one of the drawbacks to only taking classes online... I don't get to overhear the good stuff. I do see people use the word "Dude" in their online posts, though. It's freakin' hilarious!

Argh. So that is what my classmates thought of me my freshman year. Dude, I need a beer.

Daddyman said...

It's a leap year, right? Doesn't that change things?

Mama of 2 said...

what happened to the other 165 days of the year? Perhaps those are the days he's absent from life?

That was too funny though. Can't wait to hear more of the conversations you overhear.

Jen said...

ROFLOL...seems like you ought to shoot RIGHT TO THE TOP of that class! :-D

When my brother was applying to college, he had to double check with me what 'annual' meant when he had to find out what his annual fees cost.

DUH!!! I was so embarrassed he was my brother...

hey, at least he listened to what the girl said! This reminds me of my friend in junior high that used to chart her outfits so she did not wear the same thing in a month. However stupid the dude sounds, the chick sounds dumber. Id rather hang with the dudes!

I've been blogging on this same type of material. I'm a student this year too, a good 20 years older than most of these kids, and they totally keep me laughing. Especially the gal who celebrated her "one-month anniversary" with her boyfriend by them getting their eyebrows pierced together. Kind of makes you wonder what they'll do for a one-year. Assuming they make it that far, that is!
