Alexplorer Goes Time Traveling...

If you're just joining this series already in progress, then it means you don't have a time machine, so here's the short version: Every Tuesday (your present), I come back from my adventures time-traveling around MySpace and fill you in on what happened to people from my past as they keep slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.

Ah, here's one now...



May

Then:
May (not her real name) was a sophomore in my dorm when I was a freshman.  She was pretty cool and was into all the good music at the time.  She was the completely no-nonsense type who would tell you what she thought of you and your shitty cd collection.  

There was this totally preppy guy who lived in our dorm who she had the same last name as even though they were no relation, but she liked to convince gullible people that he was her brother, and she even nick-named him "Biff" for unexplained and perhaps unexplainable reasons.  For Halloween she dressed up as Slash.

She struck up this improbable friendship with my next door neighbor Marla who was a sweet, perky little blonde with a smile from a toothpaste commercial, and they were inseparable for a while.  It would be really hot if I thought there was some girl on girl action there, but I kind of doubt it.


Now:
Though we knew each other about 15 years ago and 500 miles from here, she only lives about 20 miles from me now, and not much has changed in that time.  I mean, her profile reads simply "I like beer."

Hypothetical letter I'll probably never send to her:
May,

Did you and Marla ever... you know?  Just curious.

-Alex.
