March 26 2008

I stroll out of my seminar, wandering through the warm green grass, lazily turning my phone back on.

It's already ringing -- Mary.

"Are you going to Detroit?"

"No, I wish, but I mean it's four hundred dollars and I just can't --"

"NO IT'S NOT, NO IT'S NOT! GO CHECK YOUR EMAIL!"

"What?"

"GO CHECK YOUR EMAIL!"

"Okay, but --"
I've barely hung up when Elizabeth comes flying out of nowhere and she's shouting, she never shouts, "We already put your name in, we already put your name in, go go go go GO!"
"WHAT?" I shriek, I don't understand I don't know what's going on what are they talking about Detroit wait maybe wait maybe nooo way but wait MAYBE and I start running too, my feet pounding down the sidewalk bag slamming my hip fumbling through my pockets for my catcard slide it through click wrench the door open what the HELL is going on??
To all Davidson students: given the extraordinary nature of the success of the men's basketball team...
Oh my god.
