BA: It’s got everything in it that students at Carolina like. We go to everyone’s favorite spots and then tell the real story. Plus, it probably didn’t hurt that I already had the bucket list blog.LJ: I think what Beau is trying to say is that our blog represents experiences at Carolina that a lot of our fellow students can relate to.
BA: Definitely the basketball game. Can you believe it was London’s first? I mean, who makes it to their senior year without going to a single game?LJ: I’m very dedicated to the theater with rehearsals and shows I just don’t have time for extra stuff. But, yes, I agree with Beau. The basketball date was definitely fun. I think I’ll pass on anymore wall climbing.
BA: Yeah, London got her picture with Rameses. I think she’s a fan now.LJ: I am. I hope we get to go to some more games.
LJ: Beau has been really awesome with all the planning since my play opens this weekend. I’ve spent every spare minute rehearsing.BA: Well, I just don’t want to take a chance we end up horseback riding with glasses of champagne in our hands. So far it’s worked out. How often can you say you get to go to the wine bar, margarita Thursday, rock climb, and cheer for your team all for a class project? It’s pretty awesome.
LJ: Uh—I—no, no we are sticking by our hypothesis. The dates are great and all, but if the feelings aren’t there you can’t force two people to fall in love. Love Match is clearly contrived.
BA: No, London is right. The show puts people in these ridiculous situations and expects them to instantly fall for each other. We know that’s not how it works. We have a great system for the project and it’s turning out to be a lot of fun.
BA: I—I haven’t heard that. I think they’ll be disappointed. London and I know how this is going to work out. We watch the shows, we go on the dates, and then we share it with everyone. There’s nothing more to it than that.LJ: Oh, that’s just people getting wrapped up in the romance of the TV show. It’s exactly what Beau and I are trying to dispel. All we are hoping to do is present a great project, and of course we want a grade that reflects that.
BA: Yep, London’s determined we’re going to get an A.LJ: You don’t want an A?
BA: I’m just saying, the project’s fun. We don’t have to get an A.
LJ: Wow, that’s a great question. Beau, you want to go first?BA: Hmm…I’m sure I could think of something.LJ: Well, you are the more adventurous one. You’d probably try to sneak me to the top of the bell tower or something.BA: Hey, that’s not a bad idea. It could be awesome.LJ: I was kidding. We are not doing that.BA: Right, I know. You’re afraid of heights—I learned that lesson. Ok, if I got to choose my own date, a real date, I would probably take London to La Res for a French dinner and then to The Chelsea for one of those Indie films she likes.LJ: Really? French food and an Indie film?BA: I’d want you to have a good time. Let’s hear it. What would you plan for me?LJ: Ok. If I planned a date for Beau it would have to be something really high energy. He likes to be on the go. You’ve probably read all of the things he has done so far on his bucket list.BA: You are stalling, girl.LJ: No, I’m not. I know exactly what I’d do. I’d sign us up for the dodgeball tournament next week at the campus rec and then go to Top of the Hill for some drinks and take in the Franklin Street view you like so much.BA: You’d play dodgeball?LJ: I have to show you I’m more coordinated than you think.BA: Sounds like the perfect date to me. Let’s sign up for the tournament no matter what Love Match does.
