ROYCE: Did you ever have one of those weeks where it seems like everything that could possibly happen does?
BLORE: Somehow I have a feeling that you did.
ROYCE: So I'm elected as Junior Attendant (it's official now), I get asked to the Homecoming dance, and on top of that I'm practicing for the lead role in the play, all the while fending off piles of homework, an emotionally unstable brother, and in the back of mind mind is lurking the College Search and the slight fear that I'm failing all of my classes.
ROYCE: But, y'know, it's somehow all okay.
ROYCE: Okay. So something happened. Or maybe not. At any rate I don't believe it.
BLORE: I'm trying to recall a time when you've been more vague than this. I'm have trouble.
ROYCE: So yesterday, I told you about possibly being voting for Junior Attendant, right? Several events happened today that make me almost certain that I won.
ROYCE: But I absolutly refuse to believe it. Why can't Will Cantwell win? He won the last two years.
MEATBALL: You're one weird cookie.
ROYCE: I've gotten some perspective this past week. I play the father of 12 children in the fall play, and oh my goodness. I keep having to tell myself 'Only two kids! Only two kids!'
BLORE: You're in the fall play? And you have the lead? I didn't know that.
ROYCE: Yeah, I have a tendancy not to tell people. I keep it to myself.
MEATBALL: That's weird. You'd think you'd be so excited that you'd want to tell everyone.
ROYCE: It's not that I'm not excited, it's just that I don't know how to bring it up in normal conversation without sounding like I'm bragging. Oh! I've also heard from three different student senators that I have a large number of votes for Junior Attendant to the homecoming royalty. As if I needed another thing to worry about.
MEATBALL: And you can bring that up in normal conversation?
ROYCE: That's different. Nothing's actually happened yet.
MEATBALL: Ah. I see.
MEATBALL: So, I hear BlogNomic's got a new Emperor.
ROYCE: Or Shogun, or whatever he turns out to be.
BLORE: What do you think of that?
CATS: Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
ROYCE: So I better not say anything then.
