Revving Up

We were in the department office after our evening classes.  Most students had already left the campus, and Alexie and I were looking forward to a few quiet moments to work on our projects.

"Vroom!  Vroom!  Skreeeech!"  Alexie pushed over to the window; I craned my head to look out.  The engine's revving faded to a drone and the screeching tires thudded over the curb as the Camaro pulled out of the lot.  Then, another car--I couldn't tell what it was in the darkness--echoed the Camaro and made the same beeline out of the lot.

Alexie: "You know, you guys don't have to show us you have penises!"

Me, to myself:  "Yeah, and having one isn't all that.  Trust me, I know!"
