Yale-isms

1) “Let’s get a meal sometime!”

Let’s not.

2) “I go to school in New Haven.” That’s in Massachusetts, right?

3) “So, what are you doing this summer?”

How about we talk about it in September when you ask me how my summer went.

5) “There is no food in the dining hall.”

Really? None? None at all?

Well, I guess it’s better than clapping in conversation.

8) “Excuse me, are you Jewish?”

If I’m not, can I still go on Birthright?

9) “Sorry, can’t tonight! I’ve got society.”
