Storytime. Part 3

{Read previous parts here.}
After further investigation, I learned that his injuries weren't quite as severe as my roommate made it sound.  He had broken his eye socket during a basketball game, when a player on the other team swung at him while he wasn't looking.  It was obviously still a very painful injury and he'd undergone surgery for it during the fall.

{Sidenote: Mr. BUB has agreed to guest post, telling his side of the 'broken face' story!}

Spring semester ended without further incident. I started casually dating another guy out of town.  I had little interest in him romantically, but I did enjoy his company for the time being.

Summer began and my roommates moved out.  I started packing for my own move to a new on-campus apartment.  I was very bored & alone so when word spread that our school had finally gotten Facebook, I jumped at the opportunity to sign up.  I added the only 13 people I knew and signed off.

Later that evening, I received an email.  Mr. BUB had requested to be my friend on Facebook.  "Great," I thought.  "Now he can write on my wall about my lack of waterproof mascara."

After a short debate, I clicked "accept".  My computer dinged almost immediately, signalling a message.

Mr. BUB: Hey Heather, I'm new at this Facebook thing.  This was also my first year at HBU.  I don't think I've had the pleasure of meeting you.  I'm sorry if we've met and I don't remember.  Holla back at me.  See you around.

I paused.  

"Wait--what?!" I thought,  "He doesn't remember me?!  What a jerk!  We've met on more than one occasion.  Wait...if he doesn't remember me, he doesn't remember the towel incident.  Okay, this isn't so bad..."
