Heard in the Halls

Heard in the Halls

Dani Ricker, Posted June 4, 2014

Hey there, Lowry. I’m here once again to talk all about the random stuff I hear throughout my day just walking in between classes. So sit back and enjoy the read.

So I was walking down the hallway and this kid said, “Why is fruit even a thing? Like, I’m pretty sure I could survive on donuts and chocolate-covered strawberries my entire life.”

One, strawberries are a fruit. And two, people like you are the reason Americans are obese.

“Why can’t a bike stand on its own? … It was two tired!” Haha, get it? Because a bike has two tires. That was a good one, I like you, kid.

“Are you kidding me? C’mon man, I wore cute underwear for this.” Hey man, don’t feel bad. Every day should be a cute underwear day anyway.

“I don’t know how to do math!” Dude, I say this to myself every day of my life. Except for weekends because nobody does math on the weekend; unless you’re weird. Then we probably can’t be friends, because people who willingly do math on weekends make me uncomfortable.

“Lol. I don’t even remember the last time I showered.” There is so much wrong with that sentence, I don’t even know where to begin.

First, “Lol” is not a word. Why don’t you just laugh? That literally means “laugh out loud”. So laugh. That’s the equivalent of saying “laugh laugh laugh” rather than just laughing!

Second, if you don’t shower at least every other day, we can’t be friends. You should shower every day, but if you’re one of those every-other-day types, I can understand.

Seriously, you’re like that kid that said he doesn’t brush his teeth. It’s gross. Just do it.

But hey, that’s Lowry for you. It’s been one heck of a year. I never realized the interesting things that were said in the halls until this year.

It’s definitely taught me a lesson. So don’t forget to open your ears and listen while you’re walking through the halls. You might just learn a thing or two.
