The second guy had a good story but went a bit overboard on his read.

She's delusional. There's no way anyone she's that naive / dumb. Especially after having dated more than one gay guy.

So I walk into the forest and I have my toilet paper. I find this like big moss colored rock and so I'm sitting there and I'm like looking around enjoying the scenery. I look over at this one tree and there's like a squirrel just sitting on one of the lower branches and it's just looking at me. It's like looking straight at me and I was like WHAT DOES IT WANT? I can't poop with a squirrel watching me and so I turned in my other direction and there was just like a deer standing there watching me too and I was like why?  🐾 💩

Thank you for cleaning up the cockroaches we mentioned last semester. The shorter chore lists have been appreciated. You're really stepping up. Final score 98. Cooking: we congratulate you on a successful term, almost asparagus free. One thing to keep in mind next term, go for the presentation. Try flower petals on the sides of the plate...gorgeous. Excellent choice in junk food. (chef's kiss). Loved the gushers for the first half of the semester. WE ARE CONSIDERING TAKING OFF 50 POINTS FOR THE REMOVAL OF RAMEN ITEMS FROM THE KITCHEN. 😆

Love the show, but the short episodes mean the "fluff" ratio (advertisements, theme somg, etc) is pretty awful. Do you REALLY need 2X ads for a whopping ~15 minutes?

from a lifelong Blockhead in the UK I absolutely loved this episode. I can relate to all the feelings and dreams these girls had. I am STILL holding out to be the next Mrs McIntyre!
