Deciding on a roommate story to tell wasn't easy. I mean, I have stories about all four of my roommates. I decided to tell one about B, because she was my first roommate and the one who I traded emails with much like Elizabeth and Lauren in ROOMIES. (Mostly, B and I discovered that we were scary similar and possibly the same person.)

B was a gorgeous Amazon of a girl. She was only a couple of inches taller than me and quite athletic. Throw in a sense of fashion and major social skills and she definitely stuck out in a good way in the Honors dorm. One day the guy I was seriously flirting with and I took the very serious step of convincing our groups of friends to eat together in the cafeteria. He and one of his friends got into an argument about Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was a pretty classic geeky argument.
And then B just shut them down. Turns out she was a Star Trek expert.
That's the fun of the roommate lottery. You get to meet someone, try to get along fast, and then learn all sorts of weird things about them you never would've guessed. It's sometimes trying and sometimes fun, but so worth it. Plus, sometimes you get to see a beauty queen like B prove that she's the Queen Nerd. It's hard to box people up even when you stuff them into a dorm room.
