So I decided I’d like to go back to an animal theme costume, like I always did before high school.
I was thinkin a sea creature of some sort,
maybe a portuguese man of war,
but then I thought, How bout a sting ray?
Specfically, the sting ray that killed The Crocodile Hunter.
Yes, no, or other thoughts?
Are you here because of football?
Are you here because of the parties?
Are you here because of the creative writing program?
Are you here because of the medical research facilities?
Are you here because you didn’t know what else to do?
Are you here because of your test scores?
Are you here because you’re white?
Are you here because you’re middle-class?
Are you here because you’re “college material”?
Dude, I do have friends like this. Win :)
