The girl in the dining hall

We went to DC this weekend. On Sunday, Mrs. G and myself went to lunch with our two friends at a dining hall on the campus of American University, where they went to college.

Across the dining hall from us was a group of four nerdy girls, the type of girls who don't even realize that they have a vagina yet.

On the way out of the cafeteria, I approached one girl -- big black afro, pale, ghostlike skin -- and confessed something to her.

"Hi there we had an English class together last year boy oh wow was that class hard or what I think you look really nice and seem like a nice person and I really like you a lot okay bye."

I was staring at the floor the entire time. Then I gently walked away as I heard this table gasp and then giggle.

These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty

My old boss, Dr. W., was a perfectly fine person to work for. However, this did not change the fact that she is a woman in her 50's and I only know about Chico's and Talbot's in passing.

This generational gap was no more evident than one afternoon a few months ago. My boss and I had to walk from our building to another on campus to drop off some boxes. I am usually fine walking in complete silence with someone I have nothing in common with. Dr. W, however, is the opposite. She feels the need to fill in empty space with empty conversation. And that lead to the following exchange:

DR. W: "So, Gregg, do you ever watch Seinfeld?"
GREGG: "Yes. I've seen Seinfeld."
(We walk for about 45 seconds.)
Dr. W: "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"

We then continued to walk in silence for the next five minutes.
