The Extremist Arbor Anecdotes Before You Were Here
Sorry, wrong number
I accidentally dialed the wrong
number last month. The person
who answered laughed and told
me I had the wrong number.
I thought nothing of it, dialed
the correct phone number, and my
day went on like normal.
Then that afternoon, I received
a text message from the wrong
number I had called earlier:
"Hey baby. i miss you lots. last
night was a good time. we'll do a
Unfortunately, I'd been on my
own the night before. Even so, it

a circle just outside of Cottage
They began to sing, inviting
us to join as they linked arms
We realized we had happened
upon the entire Men's Glee Club.
It was then that a friend of mine
was in the group, and the glee club
started to sing "Happy Birthday."
I was flattered, having dozens
of men serenading me in perfect
harmony. However, as the verse
ended, my friend rushed forward,
trying to prevent my compan-
ion and I from hearing the rest. I
couldn'tmake outmost of the non-
traditional lyrics with his hands
clamped tightly over my ears, bar-
ring the cheerful finale of "One
year closer to DEATH."
