Shoobies from Rocket Power


As an employee who works through the summers, I think I know what it’s like to live in a tourist destination.

The wave of humanity all descends on your neighborhood rapidly, they don’t know where they’re going, they dress poorly for the weather and social conditions. They fill up the cafes around your place of work and you wait forever for a cup of coffee (the only thing you really ever buy because the prices are stupid and the food is grossly indulgent. I don’t think that brownie would even fit into my bag…). Ironically, they’re the reason you have your job so you really need them around.

Starting today I will refer to all poorly acclimated OSU students as shoobies. In the most endearing way, of course.
