The Squig­gles Sem­i­nar is De­cep­tive­ly Dif­fi­cult

Hoop ear­rings girl: So I found out yes­ter­day the name of my class is Ad­vanced Cal­cu­lus. I knew it was ad­vanced but I did­n’t know it was cal­cu­lus. I wish I’d known when I reg­is­tered. It’s nice and in­ter­est­ing. There are a lot of squig­gles that look re­al­ly nice. But I’m go­ing to trans­fer to the reg­u­lar class, be­cause it’s not a re­quire­ment for my de­gree, and why get a C or D, when I can get an A?

Bronz­ing Blonde: So this guy was like “I can’t tan in that bed, I’ll burn,” so I said, “Um, your last name is Gar­cia, you should­n’t burn that eas­i­ly.”
Bronz­ing Brunette: Se­ri­ous­ly? I mean just be­cause your last name is Gar­cia does­n’t mean it’s okay to be stu­pid.
