It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I’m talking about high school, of course. Learn how to describe your fellow students in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:32 Explanations: 3:26 Fast dialog: 18:31 Cheech: Is this your old yearbook? Boo: Yeah, I found it while cleaning out my closet. Cheech: Look at your picture! You look like you were an honor roll student. Boo: Don’t be fooled. I was just an average student, not the valedictorian, but not a dropout either. Cheech: Who is that? She’s very pretty. Boo: That’s my friend Marlene. In high school, she was good at everything. She had a high GPA and took every availableAP class. Cheech: So she was a nerd. Boo: No, not at all. She was also a jock, a member of lots of student clubs, and was student body president. Cheech: Wow, she must have been popular. Boo: She was, but she wasn’t stuck-up. She got along with everybody, not just the football players and cheerleaders. She was friends with geeks and goths, too. Everybody liked her. Cheech: Where is she now? Do you still keep in touch? Boo: Yes, of course. She’s doing very well and is very successful. Cheech: And single? Boo: Yeah, but you’re not her type. Cheech: And what type is that? Boo: You? Definitely a druggie.
