Me: I mean I’m pretty shy—oh, don’t laugh, it’s true. Internally, I have to really force myself to talk to a new person. I just want to crawl into my hole.
H—: But I think you like to meet people.
Me: Especially at Caltech. You talk to a girl there are only two possibilities: 1) You talk to her with four other guys talking to her; or, 2) you talk to her for like ten seconds before four other guys come around to talk to her.
H—: Hahah. Well, you know what they say… “The odds are good when the goods are odd.”
Me: “The odds are good when the goods are odd?” Sounds like a poster advocating a Prince Albert.
