Script Details

This story is told by a young adult male as he recollects the years between 7th grade and college.

File sent by the seeker:

The following contains some typical dialogue between the three main characters. It takes place the summer before their 9th grade year:

“What does an engineer do?” Laci asked. “I mean, I know you’re not going to be driving a train . . .” she looked at me and smirked, “but what’ll you be doing exactly . . . designing stuff?”
“Well, that’s part of it,” he said, “but there’s a lot more to it than that. After you design something you build a prototype, or have someone else build it, and then you work with the prototype and you have to fix any problems and redesign it and make sure all the technical aspects are right.”
“But,” Laci said, “what are you going to be working on? Buildings? Cars?”
“I don’t know yet. That’s one of the great things about engineering . . .” he said. He was beginning to sound as excited about engineering as Laci was about Mexico. “You can work anywhere in the world and go into just about any field you want . . . aeronautical engineering, computer engineering, nuclear engineering, structural engineering, automotive engineering, cellular engin–”
“Okay, okay,” I interrupted, putting my hand over his mouth. “We got it. You sound like Bubba on Forest Gump. Boiled shrimp . . . fried shrimp . . . grilled shrimp . . .”
They both laughed.
“Did you say you’re going to take physics as a junior?” I asked him.
He nodded.
“You can’t do that unless you take Honors Geometry this year.”
“I know.”
“You signed up for Honors?”
He nodded again.
“That means you’re going to have my mom,” I said. “Good luck.”
“You didn’t sign up for Honors?” he asked, sounding disappointed.
“Why not? You did good last year in Algebra One.”
“Why would I take Honors when I don’t have to?” I asked.
“Well, first of all because it’ll be fun to take it together and second of all because it’ll look really good on your transcript. What are you going to major in?”
“I don’t have any idea,” I said. It was really starting to bother me that everybody else seemed to know what they wanted to do.
“You should go into engineering!”
I rolled my eyes.
“Oh come on!” he said. “I’ll help you. We can go to State together and we’ll be roommates – like Bert and Ernie.”
“You watch too much TV with Charlotte,” I told him.
“You can be Bert,” he promised.
“Yeah, right,” Laci murmured. “As if he could be Ernie.”
