My mom and her best friend, Trish, met in college because they were both failing their physiology class. The teacher would give students extra credit if they showed up early to class and wrote the homework problems on the board. Well my mom would always beat Trish there, which made Trish mad. She was just trying to save her grade. Then one day, there was a parade going on and my mom’s roommates didn’t want to go, so she went by herself. She saw Trish walking by herself as well and recognized her from class. So my mom caught up to her and they went to the parade together, because Trish’s roommates were also being lame and didn’t go. They started talking and now they are lifelong friends!
