All Nighter


Physics, Calculus and Chemistry – why are all midterms on the same day?

And Mike had no clean underwear.

At least the laundry would be empty.

There were clothes in all of the apartment complex’s washers. 

He’d just have to wait it out.

An hour later he heard, “Oh my God, have you been waiting long?  Nobody does wash at 2 AM!”

Mike had wanted to meet her for months.

“No problem, I was studying.”

“Me too. Do you mind if I join you? I’ll keep an eye on the drier.”

Fighting butterflies, Mike returned her smile.  “I’d like nothing better.”

      When I was in school finals were usually spread out over a week but midterms all too often were clumped together. And I did know a few students that would have pushed off cleaning underwear and not thought twice about it… Thanks :)

      Yep. Though at least at the beginning it is her underthings (he couldn’t start his wash until she moved her clothes from washer to drier, so she is sitting with him so she can free the drier when her things are dry).
