Do you ever stop in a moment as you live it and realize, “Wow, one day I’m gonna really miss this?” That just happened to me while sitting at the dining room table of my little college cottage after registering for classes I will take my SENIOR year. Wow. My housemate and I had the same registration time and sat anxiously waiting for the clock to strike 9:00 a.m.
Why are there so many pizza restaurants on Franklin Street? Every year a new one moves in. What is the logic? It’s like gas stations that move in across the street from one another and compete by the penny for price per gallon. Let’s mix it up. Can I get a Chopt?? Can I get a Cookout????
