Flop at the Taco Shop
About 2 years ago I was in college and working at a taco shop. This girl who was also a student would come in most days and get lunch and work on homework. One day I decided to try to talk to her. I asked her what she was working on and she told me she was writing a paper on Virginia Wolfe.
As a conservation biology major, my first thought was that she was writing a paper about wolves in Virginia. “I didn’t know there were wolves in Virginia” I said. She stared at me in silence for what felt like ten minutes before explaining to me that she was not writing a paper about Virginian wolves. The worst part is, I knew who Virginia Wolfe was, but it was far too late for me to try to redeem myself.
