What follows is an approximation of an actual conversation between a friend and myself in the recent past. It should be noted that ever since I decided to come to Fuller, my friend has been pessimistic about the prospects of my ever returning to Idaho. Here, she was trying to determine the chances of my return:
My friend: So, are you a Californian yet?
Me: Well, I was forced to get a California license. Does that count?
My friend: not especially. What else?
Me: Well, I have lived here for several months and I really do like it. Oh, and I also wear really big sunglasses now.
My friend: ok, what else?
Me: Um, lets see. I’ve taken up yoga, and I only drink soy lattes now.
My friend: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
