But, perhaps minus the ‘hot’ part.
With school fast approaching in less than 2 months (horrid, I know) I can’t help but look back at some memorable moments of my freshmen year and know that second year could very well be much worse.
I like to think of myself as a sophisticated woman with impeccable taste, however, my friends will tell you different.
During second semester and final exam period, I did a very, very, very stupid thing. In my defence, I was only running on 4 hours of sleep, but I guess the lack of sleep means I’m extra gullible.
My friends thought it would be funny to watch me suffer minutes before our biology final and let me tell you, it was not. One of my friends, let’s call her Sophie, told me (in all seriousness) that it was scientifically proven that eating excessive amounts of mustard right before an exam would significantly improve brain power. Being a biology student, I found that quite believable…perhaps the spicy flavour excited more brain cells and allowed for a quicker reaction time to the brain that could be beneficial for tackling multiple choice questions… but apparently, not.
Now to me, that didn’t seem like a far-off thing to say, and I clearly believed it, because seconds later I ran over to the condiment table in the cafeteria and started smothering my cup with globs of yellow mustard. I then brought it over to our cafeteria table and started stuffy my face with mustard. I was so focused on becoming smarter for my exam that I didn’t even notice my friends gawking at me and snapping videos and photos of me in this horrific moment.
My eyes started watering and my mouth was very, very HOT! I turn my head to see them all laughing their heads off and howling at my gullibility and stupidity. Not only was I embarrassed, but I also had to write my exam with a burning mouth and a full bladder from chugging so much water.
so, word of advice, don’t eat mustard and don’t be gullible.
