Heyhey. If you ride a Bus 4, then please tell me. I love Bus 4-riders. They're cool. Or Bus 836. Either will do...BTW, this took place in the afternoon. And it never REALLY happened. Some of our inside jokes are in here...laugh. They're now your inside jokes too. I hate inside jokes, because while they're hilarious, you look like an idiot when reminding friends of them, but they're SO MUCH FUN. So now they're everyone's.

(Note to my friends: I still love inside jokes... ...just trying to make everyone feel better about NOT understanding mine... BEAR WITH ME PEOPLE!!! CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE!!!)

Evil Em: smiles sweetly, only since she's evil, all of her emotions are evil, and they make my ... diaphragm hurt

Amber: I guess I will.

Good Em: I will, too.

Ben: That all?

crickets chirp

Ben: ALRIGHT. Heads down. It was Groundhog's Day. For breakfast, the people of ... the town of Wyoming ...

Emily: That's a state.

Ben: ... ate buttermilk pancakes, and for lunch they ate egg salad sandwiches. Except the vegetarians and vegans, who ate plants. For dinner, they had a feast of groundhog food.

Emily: ...

Ben: Yes. They were all stuffed to high Heaven. So naturally, everyone went to bed early. As Benjamin Franklin--

Emily: That would be you...

Ben--Grr. Not me. Well, he said, "Early to bed--"

Me: Phlegm needs to use the restroom.

Ben: ...Good for him. HA! His name IS Phlegm. I knew it.

Me: --No; you just don't know him by anything BUT Phlegm. His real name is Fred.

((Just for you readers who don't know me, Fred/Phlegm is my flamingo pen. Ben named him Phlegm during Spanish last year. His real name is Fred Flamingo. I swear.))

Ben: ANYWAYs. He has issues.

((BTW, Phlegm--I mean Fred broke his one and only leg last year. He had to go to the hospital. And then he got thrown away... :( ))

Ben: "Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." So these townspeople went to bed at five p.m.

Emily: Uh--

Ben: Okay, five thirty. Emily, head DOWN.

Emily: puts head down again

Ben: Well--oh. Ok. If I tap you once, you're the MAFIA. Twice means you're a townsperson. Thrice--

Me: That word reminds me of baby wipes...

Ben: ... Well, three times means you're a defective--

Erin: HEY..

Me: That's mean.

Ben: DETECTIVE, I mean. Okay. Well, heads down. No peeking.

Andrew: I wanna play.

Alexis: ME, too.

Me: What gives? Why am I always the first one dead??
