G’Day Mate-Lachlan Johnson

He’s smart, handsome, sassy and has an Australian accent. You haven’t seen him around CUA because he doesn’t even go there. Who is he? He is one of my good friends from my study abroad in Australia and I met him in my COUN109 class. Let me tell you about this guy who made my semester unforgettable-well at least every Wednesday morning.

What is the point of chicken salt: To season our chips so they aren’t just pure potatoes.

Why do you have fake ketchup: First, it’s tomato sauce and second, it is not fake. It is sauce made from tomatoes. Maybe yours is fake

What is your favorite part of your Coun 109 class: The fact I have to get up at 7:30, Jk none of it. (Ouch :p)

What did you think of RoRo when you met her? Basic white girl. If I was Zane- do you live alone? Just kidding, I would have worded it a lot better. Real talk: I though she was funny because of Zane and then basic white girl. She got more basic with every week.

Well there you go ladies. Better buy your tickets and try and convince this guy that American girls are the way to go! In all seriousness, thank you for making this a great semester for me, Lachlan. I can’t wait to see you at my wedding, seeing as you invited yourself already.
