It saddens my merry heart to say that we are nearing the end of this series affectionately labelled The Roommate Chronicles as Roomie and I are parting ways for next year. But don’t despair; we may concoct many more stories yet! Who knows what the future brings!
Tonight Roomie and I were at a mutual friend’s party, so we went there and walked home together. We even made a new fellow complex friend! And a parked-near-the-complex friend…
Naomi: [Walking towards our room] Well, that was totally fun!
[Roomie reaches for her keys and knocks on the door before unlocking it.]
Naomi: Huh? What are you knocking for?
Roomie: Err, I didn’t want to disturb you.
Naomi: But I’m right here!
Roomie: Uhm, force of habit.
[Both burst out laughing]
Naomi: Ah, I should put this on the blog!
[Several minutes later, both are writing/drawing viciously at their study desks: Roomie fights her sugar high, Naomi struggles through her sugar crash]
Naomi: Hey, what did I say I was going to write on my blog?
Roomie: I don’t think I should remind you.
Naomi: Aw, come on, what was it?
Roomie: … I knocked…
Naomi: [Bursts out laughing] OH YEAH! How could I forget? Ha-ha! Thanks!
Roomie: I will regret saying that…
Naomi: What are you doing?
Roomie: Trying to dilute the sugar.
Naomi: But you’re tired! Look! [Points to Roomie’s eyes] Those are sleepy eyes!
Roomie: But I know I would be able to sleep!
Naomi: How can you tell?! I just go to bed and end up wide-eyed, staring at the ceiling, seeing things.
Naomi: Err, I mean, not seeing things. Haven’t you ever half squinted and followed those nearly transparent bubbly things floating around?
Roomie: Well, I’m not the weird one here.
