MAKING IT MOVE

After the professor collected final
papers, passed out course evaluation
sheets and left the room just 15 minutes
into the last class period, my classmates
began to gather their things and shuffle
out the door without a look back. Most of
my classmates, that is. One short, book-
ish boy held back, musteringup the cour-
age to ask something of a girl who was
sliding her evaluation into the envelope.
Though I didn't hear how he worded his
entreaty, the girl's response - "Um, no
thanks. I'm flattered, though" - implied
romantic rejection.
Soon after turning in my own evalu-
ation, I found a vacant computer out-
side the Fishbowl and within minutes
overheard the "letting down nicely" of
another luckless suitor.
"So," a boy said to a girl as they left
the lecture hall. "I was wondering ifyou
wanted to get dinner this week?" "Um,
as friends?" his darling replied. "Well,
as whatever you'd like ..." The girl mum-
bled something about a probably make-
believe boyfriend, then chirped, "But I
like talking to you," before running off.

Ann Arbor or University of Michi-
gan experience? E-mail submissions

These might be common occurences
near the end of the semester. After all,
before final exams or Christmas music,
'tis the season for realizing that your
lab partner was only really interested in
your answers to the homework.

A chase with a score
Although it was a clear indication
that our little town is about to go into
hibernation, last week's snowfall, with
quarter-sized snowflakes, was lovely.
As I was walking to work, though, my
reverie was interrupted by the sight of a
dog in the middle of the intersection at
State and William. Ownerless and ter-
rified, it nonetheless refused to come
to me when I beckoned. A girl (not the
owner) was running toward the dog,

and without thinking I loped along next
to her as the pooch scampered toward
the Modern Languages Building..
The chase quickly lost its sponta-
neous fun when the poor thing was
nearly run over by abus before my eyes.
Panic set in, which was heightened by
the music in my headphones - Alicia
Keys's hit "No One."
Seriously, I was living in a bad movie.
Her enormous harmonies on the cho-
rus seemed to urge me forward. Into
the Diag I followed that dog, yelling
at people - probably much too loudly
because of my headphones - to grab
him (or was ita her?).
Despite the song's epically melancholy
exigency, I lost hope as the dog ran into
the middle of a bunch of idling kids near
the Haven side of Angell Hall. I yelled,
"The dog! The dog! Please hold onto the
dog! Please!"
They gave me looks of utter incom-
prehension. The dog ran on. I went to
work with Keys's "Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohs"
in my soul.
