Alexplorer Goes Time
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 (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
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.
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."
letter I'll probably never send to her:
Did you and Marla ever... you know?
