When you’re the source of gossip, everyone IS like a zombie. Except, instead of wanting to eat your brains, they just want to dig through it for the juicy tidbits they don’t know yet. Funny; that actually makes it sound more symbolic and relevant than I meant it to be.
The “guy gossip” that Rudy faces isn’t much better than the girl gossip that Rain faced in the last update. It’s just dirtier (and even then, I wrote it kind of tame). I wanted to include an additional bit of dialogue about “bases” too, but I left it out because I don’t know if high school boys still follow those rules or if that was just one of the dumb things of my generation.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Personally, I never heard about bases in actual conversation. That was just a joke of the older generation.
No, my generation has the girls come to school in pajama bottoms and the boys wearing their pants around their knees.
Sadly, both the pajama bottoms and the pants around the knees fads have lasted through my generation too. Especially the low pants thing, I really kinda hoped these fads were going to die a LONG time ago... -_-
@LittleLynn84: I always want to ask the guys with their pants around their knees if they know where that 'fad' came from.
(Guys in prison would wear their pants low to signify that they were open for sexual favors, in return for gifts like cigarettes.)
