Overheard in the Hallways of the Hath

By: Rachel Lowrie

Through the sea of backpacks and binders, waves of conversation flow through the hallways in between classes and free periods. Fragments of gossip and out-of-context exchange splash into the ears of wandering students. No matter how much you pull your ear and tilt your head trying to decipher them, it’s almost impossible. What did that freshman just say? Did I just hear what I think I heard? Here’s a first-hand look into the minds of those Hathaway Brown students. You know who I’m talking about.


  • “Is she a teacher or a student?”


  • “I made out with him for .2 seconds, then cried”


  • “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.”


  • “I can’t wait to blow my mom’s credit card at the brown bag”


  • “Don’t put a baby in leather crotch drop pants, okay? She’s going to poop. She’s going to poop.”


  • “How do they even test for Ebola? … Should I get tested?”


  • “I’m convinced my bellybutton is connected to my colon”
