Dear fellow students:
Im sorry I expected you to think I was some weirdo. Im sorry I expected awkward glances and whispers when instead I got smiles and even hellos. It was lame of me to think youd be anything but cool about this. I would blame the worst case stories I *might* have heard from a certain spouse about your less cool classmates, but the truth is I was nervous and you were nice. Thanks.
Dear Concert Choir:
You surprised me. In a really good way. But that means my expectations were low, and Im sorry about that, too.
