Dorm life has changed my views on what is odd or even disturbing. For example, a short bearded guy being chased through a dorm by a short European guy only in his underwear shouting things in German and waving two pool cue halves is something that I would have considered odd three years ago. Did I mention that the bearded guy was being chased because he poured American (Hershey's®) chocolate syrup on a piece of German chocolate? And that the German guy had a lot of trouble getting back in his room afterwards? Or that it was study weekend? How about the fact that I am not making anything up in this short essay? The names of those involved have been changed to protect, well, me.
It all started on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in a Junior/Senior dorm that goes by the name of Drayton. I was going up to the room of a friend (whom I will call naI) to collect some money. Soon after I am in the room, I hear a hissing sound behind me. I turn around with a start and find the head of the German guy (henceforth to be called kcirtaP) staring at me and hissing at me. Seeing as it was 2 P.M., and that he was still in bed, I was somewhat appalled. Well, to be honest, I really don't care when people sleep in the afternoon, I was only looking for an excuse not to study. Now fast forward to the point when the short, bearded guy (nahtaN) comes in to help get kcirtaP up. Since kcirtaP is German, he is very much against American chocolate, thus nahtaN figured that the best way to get him up is to mix German and American chocolate. It worked. kcirtaP jumped out of bed in only his underwear and chased nahtaN down the hall with two pool cue halves. As a short epilogue, I would like to say that twenty minutes later, kcirtaP came to my room where nahtaN was with a water balloon filled with American chocolate and nahtaN had to consume much of the chocolate and was unhappy.
