Sometimes being a college "kid" when no longer a kid can be quite amusing. I'm certainly not the only olderish one, which is a nice thing, but I often get a kick out of being around "peers" that are a generation behind me.
And they talk. And I hear things.
So I'm linking up with Mama Kat again this week for the prompt:
5.) 7 things you overheard this week.
Girl outside the math building, talking to a friend: After my mid-term, I went and got a Brazilian, and now I feel better.
Instructor: I'm going to put up this slide of a Tesla Coil....
Student (female): WHAAAAT?!?
Instructor: A Tesla Coil?
Student: OH, I thought you said TESTICLE!
Girl on her phone: Well, he never talks about girls, and there's no way a guy with that hairdo is not gay.
Guy on the shuttle: They should totally use gondolas instead of these shuttle buses.
Girl on the shuttle: What? Then there'd be all kinds of sex going on in the gondolas.
Girl(1) from my Teach class, to her boyfriend: We tried to teach the scientific method to a class of 2nd graders, and we totally sucked. Now they'll hate science!
Instructor: Suppose I make the claim that the mountains got fresh snow because I danced naked last night...
Student: It'd be better if you left out the "naked" part.
Then this gem...
Girl(2) from my Teach class: Yes, I turned 30 last week. GAWD, I'm old!
