It was a Friday morning and I was
washing my face. Home alone, I heard
the door to my apartment open. A deep
voice called "Giiirls?" followed by "It's
the maintenance guy!" I was pretty
excited because apparently our land-
lords thought it was time our lights and
sinks worked.
My excitement, though, evaporated
quickly. I yelled "Hello," and the main-
tenance man replied by asking me if I
was showering. I replied that I was just
washing my face.
I sought refuge in my room as he
began to do some repairs in the bath-
room.
For the next 20 minutes I heard
intermittent shouts of "bastard!" and
"Goddamn it!" which provided a nice
soundtrack for my homework. He then
appeared at my doorway and asked me if
I was the only one home. I said yes. This
was a mistake.
He then said, "Oh good," followed by a
mock whisper, "I have to go to the bath-
room." I heard him open the bathroom
window, so I turned my television louder

and tried to remind myself that at least
the repairs were finally getting done.
LISA HAIDOSTIAN
A high school reunion
My house planned a party for the
night of the Ohio State game. We
planned the theme and the booze
beforehand - but the entertainment
came as (sort of) a surprise.
I came home the night before after a
day of quasi-job interviews, too much
coffee and 3-inch heels to one of my
housemates insisting that a guy named
"Alex" who "played guitar" in a band
called "Electric Playground" found her
on Facebook and said his band wanted
to play our house, for free - and that he
knew me.
Neither Alex nor Electric Playground
rang a bell. "You're supposed to call him

back," my housemate said. I decided to
take a nap instead, but she came knock-
ing an hour later.
"Kim! That Alex guy is here! From
Electric Playground."
"I don't know who he is!"
"You need to see him. He's in the
kitchen."
I panicked momentarily, expecting
some stranger who found my house on
Facebook to greet me in the kitchen. I
looked for some weaponry, just in case.
But I came upstairs only to see an old
high school friend.
Things had obviously changed since
we went to college. Like many kids in
high school, most people only knew
him by his last name.
"It's OK," he said to my housemate.
"Kim doesn't know me by my first
name."
So the band played. Two of the other
members were also graduates of my high
school; they're now at Western Michigan
University. It was like Troy High School
Battle of the Bands 2004 all over again.
