Killing the mood

ARTS AND CRAFTS

A few weeks ago, I was talking on
the phone late at night with a friend
from home. Before I called him, I went
to the west-side lobby of South Quad so
I wouldn't disturb my sleeping room-
mate.
My conversation kept being inter-
rupted by loud freshmen drunkenly
stumblingthroughthe lobby, soI moved
to the quieter Yuri Kochiyama lounge. It
was completely dark when I walked in. I
could barely make out the couches clut-
tered around the room and the tables in
the back were equally indistinguishable.
Settling down, I resumed my con-
versation. After I had been talking for
at least five minutes, I heard rustling
from a nearby couch. Looking over,
I saw intertwined legs, bare feet and
two faces pressed intimately together.
I told my friend I'd have to call him
back.

The power of cookies
It was pushing 1 a.m. and my par-

ents were driving me back to my house
in Ann Arbor. The entire ride, my dad
kept whining that he wanted a "treat,"
asking if cookie places would be open. I
said no. Think of a seven-year-old child,
but then think of that same child after
drinking three glasses of wine.
Meanwhile, my mother was in a
full-leg cast because she had frac-
tured her knee, and she was whining
that she just wanted to go home.
After catching a glimpse of salva-
tion, I risked our safety by shouting
"Dad! Turn here!" Like a Christmas
miracle, the big purple Insomnia
Cookies truck was sitting on Madi-
son Street. My dad thought it was a
sign from the heavens and, in awe, he
jumped out of the car to buy his holy
grail.

Airing dirty laundry
I was perched on a dryer waiting
for my laundry to finish when some-
one came in dragging a bulging sack of

dirty clothes. Heaving, he flung it on
top of the dryer and stopped to catch
his breath. His friend came in pulling
a similar load. Then they left.
A few minutes later, both came back
with two more bags of laundry. Then
they left, and then returned with two
more each. Nice guys, I thought. They
must have volunteered to help their
friends carry down laundry.
"Dude!" one guy said. "I can't
believe we're actually doing laundry.
We were like, about to set a record!"
"Yeah dude, it's been so long! I don't
even remember how to load this shit
anymore!"
"Next time, want to see how long
we can go without showers?"
"I don't know, dude, I don't think I
can go any longer than a week."
"You say that now, man, just
wait..."
I stared at my washing machine,
willing it to spin faster, and hoped for
humanity's sake that the two were at
least quarantined as roommates.
