Today a friend texted me, "can I ask you an odd question?" Naturally, I said yes, and then pondered all kinds of crazy situations while I waited for them to reply with the  "odd" question...

Are they going ask me about moving to Alaska to work on the pipeline?

Or about if the on campus health center does confidential STD testing?  (FYI: it does)

Should they move in with their significant other?

How do you make a dentist appointment?

Should they get a puppy?

(Yes, I have been asked all of these things in the last year.)

The question turned out to be about some dates on the work calendar. On my 1-10 scale of "odd" that doesn't even register as blip on the screen. Working with college students has officially messed with my head.
