A, on Monday: A massive crowd that won’t budge. It must be Occupy Law Tower, the grassroots study movement that spontaneously erupted at the start of the exam period.
B: No no, we’re only here in the lobby because we’re waiting for the elevator. You want to take the stairs to the first floor café.
A: OK, first floor café. Time to get my study on. And don’t think I’ll be leaving voluntarily. The Students United decision determined that studying counts as free speech. It’s expressive.
A, on Wednesday: Good news and bad news. This morning, the café cracked under the weight of our mission to change the national dialogue on exams. We won free coffee all morning until 11am. Separately, the café serves free coffee every Wednesday morning until 11am, but that has nothing to do with our victory. Unfortunately, our attempt to set up a desktop computer failed. The official pronouncement: “We’re letting them stay there. We’re not going to have them build a new computer lab there.” Looks like we’re stuck with laptops.
C, on Friday: Greetings friends, we’re here in solidarity from Occupation Library Annex.
A: Reinforcements have arrived for the weekend. But who’s holding down Occupation Library Annex? Look, more reinforcements.
B: No no, we met Monday remember? The elevator just picked us up from the ground floor but it isn’t working past the first floor. We’re so tired from standing that we’re not even stressed out. I think we need coffee to get us all frantic and nervous.
C: Join us, friends.
