Oh heavens, so it's July.
June zoomed by in a flurry of special events, final presentations, a birthday celebration, and a graduate school reunion weekend that basically consisted of my three very good friends and me drinking for about 50 hours straight. Also some high belting and lots of laughing.
I have just survived my first week of my fifth summer at work, and I've compiled quotes from the last month or so, so we here we go!
Colleague A: It is warm enough. I can use my boomerang.
14 year old, creating the tagline for my impending birthday: 32 sexy for you!
Me, to an 8 year old boy soaked from the sprinklers: Do you have water in your ear?
Boy: I have water everywhere, I think.
Me, to my 23 year old colleague, who swiftly identified "Crossroads" by Bone Thugs n Harmony: Why do you know this song?
Colleague B: Because my dad's a thug.
Me, reflecting on my job: I feel like after this, I could run the fucking Pentagon.
7 year old boy: In three years, on November 1, I'm gonna be 8!
7 year old girl: I don't follow the rules. I don't play games. I just watch Netflix.
12 year old girl: How do you spell Impressionism?
And here are the collected quotes from my weekend of drunkenness, spent with wonderful old friends in Vermont, in celebration of our graduation from graduate school five years ago. They will likely not amuse any but ourselves.
SN: Hashtag, I was never a west.
PM, shrieking at a bug: Nature got a little too close!
SN, as we discussed dipping into the pond: Guys! I'm gonna get an infection!
Me: What's in the middle of the country?
SN: Laura Kraybill.
MW: Vagina: the city that never sleeps!
PM: All these cabinets smell like cheese.
SN: No offense, you're my best friend!
Emerson College, class of 2010 FOREVER!
