Looking forlornly at all the Seamless orders being picked up and whisked away to drafty, poorly lit McMahon apartments, a soggy salad on that folding table in the lobby wondered if it would ever find its forever fridge.
After the salad was ignored at an under attended on-campus event, the hosts discarded the evidence of their failure in the lobby. Stale bagels and cold coffee are usually housed quickly, but this salad has been here since noon.
Alice Moore (FCLC ’21) passed by the wilting greens on her way back home, but didn’t even stop to text her roommate group chat and ask if anyone wanted her to bring it upstairs. When asked to comment on her decision, Moore responded, “If it’s shampoo samples, I’ll grab a handful. Or Tide Pods. But they’re edible. Salad isn't.”
Despite a survey conducted that discovered 85% of McMahon residents say their vegetable intake for the week is comprised mostly of “Ram Caf curly fries,” and “jalapeno poppers from The Flame,” the lonely greens in the silver tin remain in the lobby tonight, untouched.
