Last Friday I met Amy at our favorite Mexican restaurant and we reconnected over quesadillas and lime margaritas after a twenty-year hiatus. I knew who she was the moment I saw her and as we sat and talked, it reminded me of all those summers ago when we would play all day together. It was like we'd barely skipped a beat.
She's as energetic and excitable as I am and we also share another trait: Neither of us can do math in our heads. We felt like two second-graders as we sat there for FIVE MINUTES trying to figure out how to divide our bill and add 20% for the tip.
We are an embarrassment to public education.
Unless it comes to diagramming sentences.
As English nerds, we can diagram us some mean sentences.
