POINT: Hey, what’s up?
Hey! Patrick! Hey man, what’s up? It’s so great to see you, man, it’s been forever. I mean, I saw you at that party on Williams last Friday, but you seemed to be pretty busy with Brianna, you know what I mean? Ha ha ha. God, dude, you and the ladies. I’m just joshing you, man.
You look like you’re doing well. Is that a tan I see? Summer in Brazil, maybe? Man, I wish I could go to Brazil. Yeah, I was working for this investment bank this summer. It was awesome. My boss was really a nose-to-the-grindstone kind of guy, and the hours were long, but I learned a lot about business, for sure. Didn’t get an offer, but it’s all good – networking, you know? Man, isn’t the job market a trip? Ha, this guy knows what I’m talking about!
You’re looking buff, my dude. You gotta tell me your secret! You do just body weight stuff? I actually lost a lot of weight this summer, had a pretty serious stomach virus. It was touch and go there for a while, still have some recurring pains. But you look great, man!
How are the parents? Yup, mine are doing well. Funny story – they’re separated for a bit. Just silly stuff. But the divorce rate is 50% anyway, so it’s NBD. We’re at that age where we realize how fucked up they are, ha ha! Man, at least we don’t have the problems they have, right?
You seen Brianna lately? I used to have a thing for her, actually. But I mean, if you’re hitting that, I don’t want to step in your territory. We’re bros, but not eskimo bros, right? Ha ha! Man, I’m just messing with you. I’m totally over it, really!
What’s your class schedule like? I’m not actually taking any classes, per se, just looking. Wasn’t able to pay the tuition this semester, with the divorce and medical problems. I’m selling some weed on the side to get some cash, might transition into harder stuff. At least I’ve found a way to extend college, right? Ha ha, living the good life!
It’s just… good to see you, is all. You know…yeah. But enough about me. You gotta tell me: what’s up?
