Wait, did I already say that?

It's a word I like because I like what it describes. I like bad-assery. I like grand battles between good and evil. I like raging guitar riffs against thumping bass drums. I REALLY like the philly cheese steak sandwich at my school, when they serve it.
I make sure to growl through every bite, and smile stupidly while I chew each mouthful.
OK, so, today Liza party-fouled to a great extent. To understand the story completely, one has to realize that lunch at my table is an epic lunch. There is always laughter. Always shenanigans. Always food passed around. Bottles being pushed over. Terrible accents. Exploding milk cartons. Cookies. The Man Wall (and the Hinge).
This table be round.
The table is also full; we used to have some empty seats that were filled by the casual passerby, but recently two guests became more permanent residents. Clint and Jonas. They've been sitting with us regularly for quite a while, it seems. And now there are no empty seats.
And you know what Liza did?
PREPARE FOR TENSE SHIFT!
I get to the table right after her, and she tells me, "Katie and -mumble mumble- are gonna sit with us today because they're having exams."
I took a trip to the snack room, (there's a story behind this, too,) and when I sat down, I filled the only empty seat. Katie and Mr. Mumbles, who is apparently a foreigner and is hereby excused for his shyness, were sitting in the two seats for Clint and Jonas.
Of course, when Clint and Jonas came around, looking terribly confused, I was the one who told them the deal. Liza didn't say squat.
I had to send my friends away! :(
The worst part is that the newcomers did NOT add to the table livery at all. In fact, nobody said anything for most of lunch today. Nobody even looked up. It was awkward, even though Katie knew nearly everyone (not me) enough to be comfortable chatting. Liza, again, said nothing.
I was upset.
But not for long, because eventually conversation DID break out, and Mr. Mumbles said something incomprehensible, (but he SAID something!) and it became tolerable.
Plus Anthony introduced me to this great board game called Catan.
Hmm. Now I have an epic amount of English work to do.
Lunch room drama! I remember having to book it to the cafeteria early to get a seat before all teh loozerz got there. I imagine it must feel like quite an invasion to have strangers sitting at the round table....and what on earth does epic have to do with all of this??

I look at tumors in the lab all day long. Tumors, tumors, tumors... so many damn tumors. It isn't my fault that the boy turned a convo about tumors coming to haunt me in the night into a mild flirt.

Hmmm...epic is epic. Intriguing. Is there even a synonym to epic? It's like its own standalone meaning. Maybe legendary? I like that, it has a nice ring to it.

Wait, did I already comment on this?
