Where phones fear to ring [Nov. 3rd, 2008|07:24 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

Swain Hall Library.

There are two petite girls reading their email and sitting rather closer together than people who don't know each other usually sit. There's a boy with a cloud of curly physics-major hair. There's a copy of Schneier on Security on a table across the room. And I'm sitting at a desk that's been written on quite a lot, next to a huge bookcase full of volumes of the journal Pattern Recognition, which, apparently, exists.

It's right next to Lindley, and it doesn't close for another two and a half hours. And it's very, very quiet.

It's my first time in here, but, I think, not my last.

When you were little I used to go to the UNI library to study. I took earplugs and about ten pieces of bubblegum. I liked chewing all ten pieces at once; with my mouth so full, I couldn't hold up my end of any conversation and so was left alone. Couldn't hear people either. It worked pretty well.

I remember your bubble gum! And I thought it was so cool when you took your big wad of gum and stretched it waaaaaaay out and then stuffed it back in your mouth. Remember how amused we were by that? We'd ask you to do it again and again.

I'd forgotten about that part! Certainly hope you got your fill of it then, though. Bubble gum and I have parted ways now..
