Got an alumni fund raising phone call the other day. I picked up the phone, hello?, to get "HI! ... umm, yeaaaah"

Not the energetic yeah! of the cheering sports fan, but the drawling, agreeable, yeah of the happy pot head. LOL! Immediately identifiable as a student calling from Evergreen.

The caller explained that the parents club runs all kinds of activities, yeah, and um, is funded by the annual fund and would we be willing to contribute? I confused the poor sweetie by asking if the activities were for the parents or for the students (it's called the parents club, after all), generating much hilarity for me. When I promised to contribute right away via their web site, I got "oh! no pressure! ... um, or anything ..." and when I pointed out I'd forget if I didn't do it right away got a very happy "um, I know exactly what you mean! yeah!"

I wonder if my alma mater would forgive me for saying I far prefer the student fund raising calls from Evergreen than the grounded in reality, practical, feigned interest phone calls from them.
