Yesterday, on our way to a Super Bowl party…
Mego: Who are you rooting for?
Galen: I think I’m going for Green Bay, since they have two former Cal players on their team. You?
M: That makes sense. I don’t really care much about either of these teams, but as a person who has a hard time separating athletes’ personal lives from their professional lives, it’s really hard for me to root for any team involving Ben Roethlisberger.
M: In some horrible way, I wish people like him tried to mess with people like me instead of women who might be less likely to kick a guy in the nuts. I mean, if anyone ever tried to follow me into a bathroom, I’d pause for a second, say “Umm…. Excuse me?” and then, if he didn’t leave, elbow him in the face (so he was easier to identify later) and kick him in the junk (so he couldn’t make any more baby Roethlisbergers).
G: [pause.] Mini Roethlisbergers?
M: [thinking…] Sliders.
M: We are such nerds.
