sometimes you take serious pictures with your roommates
because you know it's the last time you'll all be together.
you decide to line up by height and be serious
because you're freshmen and it's cool.
after seven failed takes due to laughter,
you master the straight face and focus.
as the photographer* snaps the shot,
you feel something on your behind
and before you realize what happened,
you've been scooped.
behold, i present you with what may very well be
the best photographed scoop
in the history of photographed scoops.
*everyone knows during freshman year the designated "roommate portrait" photographer is your pretty roommate's boyfriend who, by default, ends up being the apartment boyfriend.
