In college, we are constantly introducing ourselves to people with the common name-major-year spiel. These questions are often followed by where-are-you-froms and why-did-you-choose-OCUs. Please enjoy these introduction conversations sampled from my first two years living in Oklahoma.
Student: Where are you from?
Me: An hour west of Denver.
Student: *Bonus follow-up* Haha yeah, Colorado, 420!
Me: Ha, yep.
Student: Dude that’s so cool, what’s that like?
Me: Well you know it’s actually not exciting since I’m not 21 ye-
Student: -Yeah me and some buddies have been wanting to go up there, it’s lit.
Adult Person: Why did you choose OCU?
Me: Their performance programs!
AP: Oh, yeah, it has good music and acting and stuff. OU has a really good performance program too, you know.
Every Person Ever: Have you been to Whataburger?
Me: Have I been to… Waddaburger? What?
EPE: OMG, we are going right now!
*Drives McAlyn to Whataburger, throws Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit into her mouth*
Me: This is-
EPE: The most amazing thing you have ever tasted, I know!
Me: *Discreetly dismantles food item and proceeds to eat biscuit without chicken*
