Heard in the Halls

Guess What!?


Yeah, no, I’m not going to say ‘chicken butt’ as many of you probably suspected. Do you want to know why? Because I’m a junior in high school and the joke was funny in the fifth grade.

That’s right people, I’m back to write all about the random conversations I accidentally come across while walking through the halls of Lowry High School. So kick back and enjoy the read.

Let’s start off with one of the coolest things I heard; “Did you know you can buy alien abduction insurance?”

Okay, guys, I think this is something we all need to invest in. Like seriously, go out and buy your alien abduction insurance. Because better safe than sorry.

“Dudes, for Christmas I just really, really, really, want a pet tiger.”

No, you don’t. You just think you do. Besides, it would probably eat your face off. Then you would be faceless. And really, who wants that?

“Dani, look at the wallpaper on my phone. It’s a sandwich I made. It was just so good, it had all my favorite things on it.”

Okay, I know this is supposed to stay anonymous, but I have to give a shout-out to Nick Carver because that’s pretty far out man. Like, epic winsauce status.

How many people wish their pets could talk to them? I think that would be pretty sweet. Well, one girl insisted, “My dog and I had a conversation last night. We talked about how weird grass is. Who knew a dog could be so psychological!”

First off, I’m pretty sure psychological isn’t the word you’re looking for. And second, that’s pretty awesome. I mean, you’re right, grass is really weird. I wish my dog was as cool as yours. That is, if I had a dog.

So I came across a group of freshman boys exchanging cheesy pick-up lines. They were obviously practicing for the ladies, right?

“Are you an angle? ‘Cause you’re looking right!”

“Are you religious? ‘Cause you’re the answer to my prayers.”

“Now I’m not a photographer, but I can picture you and I together.”

Okay, how do you guys not have girlfriends?

If you walk down the hallway with your music playing loudly for all to hear, I probably dislike you. If I wanted to listen to music, I would pull my phone out and plug my headphones in. Trust me, you’ll be able to hear your music better if it’s in your ear, and you won’t get any dirty looks walking down the halls.

Well guys, thanks for reading again. I hope you enjoyed yourself. Be sure to check in the next time, and please, keep talking. Because when you talk people laugh, and not in a bad way. You never know when talking about alien abductions is going to make someone’s day.
