100WW — Swimming Upstream


“Is it always like this?” Amanda asked her boyfriend, Josh.

“Pretty much,” Josh said. “The drama class, one of the most popular classes on campus, meets in the theater arts building on the other side of this bridge. That class lets out about ten minutes before my practice begins, so I end up doing this salmon swimming upstream thing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.”

“Are you ever late for practice because of all of these students blocking your way?” Amanda asked.

“No,” Josh said, “They’re drama students, not members of the wrestling team like me. They clear a path for me.”

      My character is a jock. Me? I was more likely to have been in the drama club than on the wrestling team.
