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...


Yvonne (not her real name) and I went to high school together, though she was a year younger than I was.  I honestly don't even remember her.  However, she eventually moved into my dorm sometime in my sophomore year.  Once there, it was like this bizarre popularity contest that she seemed surprised to suddenly be thrust into.  A lot of the girls in the dorm glommed all over her like she was something amazing.  In all honesty, she wasn't, but she did have a talent for attracting drama in the form of asshole guys she went out with and then tried to distance herself from.  I didn't get it at all, and I was happy to be getting out of there when I transferred at the end of the year.

She used to work as a pharmaceutical rep, but now she owns a coffee shop.  The parallels between these career choices are so obvious that I won't waste your time belaboring them.

Hypothetical letter I'll probably never send to her:

I realize I'm hardly the only time traveler in the galaxy, but WTF is up with the granny glasses?
