Walking past a group of people in the park once, I overheard a young woman asking a big bald guy, in a very innocent voice, "why do they call you donkey?"

young dude obviously trying to impress young babe on first date at Perkins, describing bread bowl salads: "It's a salad, but the bowl is made out of bread, and you can eat it."

Walking up State Street the other evening, one new student addressing another:

"Ashlee, er, Destiny..."


Heh. We 80s veterans may've indulged in bad hair and lots of teal, but at least we weren't named Destiny.
