|I think the general public keeps clamoring|
for me when they order a 'tall americano'.
But when I ran into Erin in the spring and when I hung out with her a couple of weeks ago, I had to bite my tongue because I wanted to ask her how John Park was doing. [Erin, I can see your face contorting in unusual positions right now...sorry, babe.] John Park was her boyfriend in college. They have long since broken up. It's been, oh...10 years. She has another boyfriend. I don't know him, so I can't even begin to assess if he can fill the cavern of a hole left by John Park's shoes. The funny thing is that I knew John Park less than I knew Erin in college. The only thing that I knew about him was that he played lacrosse and I remember seeing him once at a local hangout drinking a Mike's Hard Lemonade. That's it. That is it.
Erin, would you mind calling John Park and seeing how he's doing?
|I wished we could have popped|
the Pop-o-Matic Bubble in college
-Profession: Speech Language Pathologist
-Favorite dipthong: ai
-You and I went to college together. Name one or two activities that you wished we had done together: 1) Filled the arch [of a well-known academic building] with snow; and 2) crawled in the underground tunnels beneath campus.
-You go to other peoples' homes to tutor their children in speech pathology. Any interesting interactions between parents that you've observed?: Nothing crazy in the houses. But I've had parents fight in front of me. One time, a guy was weeping; his wife told him to 'not go weepy on me'.
-In your spare time, you enjoy beading. In grade school, were you making friendship bracelets all the time?: I did and sold them to neighborhoods for 10 cents. They were upscale bracelets.
-If you were to make me a friendship bracelet, what would it be like?: Orange and blue to match your orange shoes that you're wearing and the blue outfit that you talked about before. But it'd be an anklet.
