mysterious friend: so how come you never said au revior?
me: um, because I'm still here...?
mysterious friend: you are?
me: haha, yeah, I've got another 3 weeks...
mysterious friend: oh right on.
mysterious friend: so i gotta run, talk to you later
right, so I would bet money that if I'd had said that I was moved back to SC, mrhastogowashhishairorsomething would have stayed to chat.
maybe next time I'll tell him i've moved to Chile...
