To celebrate the week with my old students, I took them to a party at Brad's house.
AJ: Awww, I miss Brad.
ME: He bet that you would remain a promiscuous brat forever.
AARON: You can't really blame him.
When we got there, I was more than a little surprised to see my new students mingling with the other guests.
ANTHONY: Is this Brad trying to sabotage you?
ME: Are you surprised?
ALICIA: Don't worry. We'll be on the look-out.
ME: Thanks. I don't know what I would have done if you hadn't showed up this week.
Everybody seemed to be having a good time, so I let my guard down.
Somehow I wound up in a guest bedroom talking with some girl from Bolivia.
ME: So how turbulent is your political system?
BOLIVIA GIRL: Pancake?
ME: You know the sad thing is that Brown probably accepted you as soon as they found out you were from a different hemisphere.
That was when the girl giggled and ran out of the room.
As soon as she was out, the door shut behind her.
I went up to try and open it, but it was a no go.
I knew who was responsible for this.
ME: Brad, open the door.
VOICE OF BRAD: No can do, Kevin. I told you. I'm not losing two bets in a row.
ME: What are you going to do? Lock me in here all night?
VOICE OF BRAD: You'll notice some trail mix underneath the bed.
VOICE OF BRAD: And bottled water.
ME: This isn't funny.
VOICE OF BRAD: Plus, there's that guest bathroom. So you should be covered until tomorrow morning.
ME: Brad, what are you planning on doing?
VOICE OF BRAD: Goodnight, Kevin.
Then I heard him walk away--laughing.
It was going to be a long night.
