navel gazer 1: We're, like, so excited! Our group got two patrons!!!
navel gazer 2: Yeah. We got $20 from a bakery, AND we got a little something from Golden Chick.
[Navel gazer 2 hands a check to the head navel gazer, a.k.a. their teacher, a.k.a. me.]
head navel gazer: (shocked, with a smudge of disbelief) What? Am I reading this correctly? Is that a 3?
navel gazers 1 and 2: (Nodding, their smiles exploding off of their faces) Can you believe it?
head navel gazer: Oh my gosh! We got a $350.00 patron!!! With the rest of our account, we finally have enough money to publish this semester's magazine!!!
all: (various expressions of gratitude and god praising and glee and jubilation)Wow! Golden Chick is our muse! Our golden, platinum, muse!!!
navel gazer 3: This calls for a group jumping hug!!
all: (run a little too enthusiastically to each other, form a group hug and begin jumping and giggling together. Then there is awkward silence as they realize what they are, in fact, doing. They separate awkwardly)
[a pause in the space/time continuum]
navel gazer 4: Let's promise to never do that again, ok?
