I first met Braulio in my Calculus II class. We were sitting next to each other, both at a complete loss for what Dr. Dicampo was saying. Then, I heard this low, deep grumble to my left. I looked over at Braulio and it seemed as if at the exact same second, we both realized the noise had come from his stomach. I couldn’t stop laughing at him, in our completely dead lecture class, his face bright red, with a stomach very, very upset with him. He eventually had to get up and go to the bathroom.
The more I saw Braulio around after this, the more I got to talk to him, and the more the both of us could wash away the embarrassment of laughing out loud in a lecture, and having stomach malfunctions. Braulio is a freshman, Civil Engineering student at OU. He is from Guadalajara, Mexico and for the past two years before college he has been living in Costa Rica as a student at the United World College there. He is the middle child of four, “right in the middle of the sandwich.” He’s a funny guy and I hope I get to talk to him more. Braulio, if you’re reading this, I hope you have fun in Vancouver, Costa Rica, and at home.
Oh, there was also free ice cream. That’s always a plus 🙂
