Going on the third and final College Trip this week. Leaving early Friday morning, coming back late Saturday night. During this shorter trip, we’ll be visiting upstate colleges (SUNYs and Cornell stick out in my mind). Nothing grand, but it’s not like I had a shot at going to those Ivies anyway. Regardless, it’ll be a fun trip, hopefully with a variant of McGuire.
The main problem I see is the hotel accomodations. There are four people in the room, and two beds. The guys I’ve roomed with seem to have this natural instinct to set up a one-bed-one-person rule. I don’t have any problem with sharing a bed, especially if it would otherwise mean me sleeping on the floor, but it’s awfully awkward to ask someone, “Hey, would you mind if I slept with you?” Come on.
Last time it wasn’t as bad. Three people over two days meant that while someone would get a bed both times, someone would sleep in a bed at least one out of the two nights. If this trip were two nights, it wouldn’t be as bad, because everybody would sleep in a bed once, easy as that. But when there are two short straws to be distributed among four people, there’s going to be some conflict. I assume we’re going to whip out the TI-83s again to roll some dice and find out who’s getting the bed, but I’ll see if I can play on people’s fear of my genitals to guarantee a bed for myself.
