Good roommates avoid Rick's

ISRAELI IMAGERY

I had gotten home from the Daily
at about 2 a.m. early Friday and was
bumming around until 4:30 a.m.,
when I had to pick up my friend from
the airport. I changed into sweat-
pants, gotsome hummus and pita out
of the refrigerator, and settled into
watching Never Been Kissed while I
killed time.
At about 4 a.m., one of my house-
mates sauntered downstairs from
her room. I said "hi," and from the
blank look in her eyes, smeared
make-up and mumble of a response,
I knew she had gone to Rick's that
night.
She went right into the kitchen, so
I got up from the couch to hear about
her night and saw that she was squat-
ting in the corner. Peeing. Next to the
stove. On top of a Papa John's pizza
box.
I shouted, "WHAT ARE YOU
DOING?" She didn't respond, but
instead just looked me in eyes - still
expressionless - and bended her way
