Actual conversation:

Me:  Barb says there’s a Sonic by her folks’ house, kind of behind Southtown.

Jeff:  The mall?

Me:  No, that’s Southdale.  Southtown is over on Penn and 494.

Jeff:  What’s the difference between the two?

Me:  Only Southtown has been written about by The Hold Steady.

While I remember almost nothing of her teaching, I do remember that she used her fake arm as both a weapon and an instrument to constantly pull her nasty wig back into position.

The boy my parents forbid me to see, that I dated for nine months behind their backs.  Six years older than me, was sweet and a virgin.   Years later, I finally deflowered him.

Having grown up in Kuwait, he knew violence.  Liked to make fun of the gory driver’s ed movies.  When he saw I was upset at one, tried to protect me from seeing it.

Otherwise frustrated coach and teacher with a pedistache, taught driver’s ed with an intensity that just make kids laugh at him.  Thought he was going to have a heart attack in every class.

Most chill dude ever.  Never raised his voice or used the idiot brake.  When I was going 15 over the highway speed limit, he calmly asked what I thought I should do about that.
