Let me just begin by saying that my roomie is a great guy. He has a knack for cooking. He grows a few plants on the windowsill. He collects cans and bottles and redeems them every few weeks. But he is a bit of a practical joker.
The other day, I was sitting in front of my computer with my water bottle resting on the bed support nearest to me. I reached over to take a sip and my water bottle wasn't there. I looked behind me, and there was my roommate, holding my water bottle with an ominous look on his face. I couldn't help but crack up. He was standing there for 8 minutes or so, waiting for a reaction from me.
Either a few days before or after the water bottle incident, I looked over at the ticket stub section of my wall and I noticed that something was off. What was it? Well, there was a stub for the movie Green Zone. I haven't seen Green Zone yet. The last movie I saw in theaters was Shutter Island, back in February (but that will be remedied this Friday with a screening of Kick-Ass). The stub had been there for a few days, I think.
Before spring break, I came back from class or the bathroom or someplace like that and I sat down at my desk. He proceeded to jump out of my closet, wearing the pair of Real-D 3D glasses that I poked the lenses out of, nearly scaring me shitless. But we had a good laugh.
But then again, I have been accidentally scaring him shitless this year. I might be walking out of the stairwell and he'll be on the other side of the door and he'll look into the stairwell and see me and get a fright. Or there was the time that I went into the bathroom in the basement of the dorm and he opened the stall door (I was waiting outside the stall. It is a single-person bathroom.) and had roughly the same reaction. So I consider this well-thought-out revenge.
Until tomorrow! Allons-y, Alonso!
