Nancy Drew turns on.

I’ve named her after my favorite literature character from my childhood even though I haven’t read a Nancy Drew book in years. She says how tired she still is & then goes to the bathroom to brush her teeth. I complain to her about my busy schedule & how annoyed I am by my statistics test. She tells me about how much she hates her CS professor from the bathroom while I go downstairs to grab a cup of coffee.

Nancy & I don’t have all the same classes but we have almost identical lives. She likes to jog with me because we are both morning people, & we cook dinner together at night. It occurs to me for the first time this morning that we are only as similar as I could stand. I think if we had one more class together we might grow tired of doing almost all of the same things, but she is programmed so we don’t.
