At Least Some Berkeley Boyfriends Are of Alarmingly Low Quality

At least some Berkeley boyfriends are of alarmingly low quality. As interesting, however, is the willingness of people to say in public on cell phones things that they would never say in public if the person they were talking to was walking beside them. Is it the belief that because only half of the conversation can be heard it is unintelligible?

In Passing...: "I thought asking to borrow my toothbrush was weird, but I thought hey, it was better than him wanting to bring his own over. But you don't ask to borrow contact lenses. That doesn't even make sense."
