‘Have a conversation like a normal person. I know you can do it. I’ve seen it once.’ BEST LINE
Me: Sammy. What do you do when youre out to drinks with a prof- not one of your profs just a prof- & like… youre… hanging out…
Sammy: Um… I’m pretty sure I have never been in that scenario since I’m not 21 just yet and professors are supposed to frown on that sort of thing. Why are YOU in that scenario?
Me: He asked me. Shut up. This is friggin glamorous grad school life ok
Sammy: Oh, is that it? Because it sounds awkward. Especially since it’s you.
Me: Youre jealous and you know it
Sammy: Oh, totally. I don’t know, Dean. Talk about Spanish literature. Ramble endlessly about your students like you do to me when I’m trying to study. Have a conversation like a normal person. I know you can do it. I’ve seen it once.
Me: Har har youre a big help. Go read about the supreme court or whatever it is you do
Sammy: Enjoy your awkward drinks.
