Sitting in class

the girl popping her gum next to me (noooooo) leans over,

"do you have a pen i could borrow?"

I look at her, "um....?" and rummage through my bag, trying to find a pen i won't care if i ever get back. I was low in supply but i found,

"i have a pencil..." offering it over in her direction.

She rolls her eyes and groans, " weeeellllll, I guess that will work."

PHEW!!! Consider me relieved. I was so nervous i wouldn't be able to supply you with any acceptable form of writing instrument- which (not surprisingly) you did not give back.

you should do what i do. if you want to borrow a writing utensil you have to give me something valuable. your ipod. cell phone. etc.. i always get my pencil back. dang.

Maybe you can move seats...it's still early enough in the semester that the "this is my seat" understanding is not too firmly in place...right???
