Extraordinary!!!

For the assignment, I drew the number four. The other person to draw a four was Demetri(os) Agas! That’s his name but from the interview I know him as

because he is just that.

because he is just that.

I began this journey of awkward questioning by asking his hobbies. You can learn a lot about a person just from those. He’s really into lacrosse. Like extremely into lacrosse. A sport more for friends than family, as he put it, but fun and competitive none the less. Not particularly profitable as even the professional ones don’t make that much. Demetri was introduced to the sport his freshman year of high school. A bunch of them banded together and got a lacrosse team assembled. The rest was made up history.

His competitiveness seeped into other things such as his school work. Always wanting to be the first done. I joking referred to Rocky being the best around. Nothing’s ever gonna get him down.  Well, until he gave up on that. But really, we can all relate to that. Being the first done doesn’t always mean everything on that assignment is correct. It’s more of a hassle than anything.

Demtrios grew up in Romeo. A place where everyone knows everything about everyone else. He had no lame jokes about Romeo and Juliet. Don’t worry I got it covered! He described himself as wilder(?) when he was younger, which I couldn’t believe.  He vaguely told me that he did a lot of stupid stuff, stuff he wouldn’t go into detail about. As far as the imagination goes, go nuts.  Once again, don’t worry, I got that covered.

His favorite movie is 300 because he’s Greek. That’s not a joke, that’s what he told me. Seriously. He then said he likes most if not all Greek movies. My Big Fat Greek Wedding, he loves it. Other Greek movies not listed, he’s probably seen them all and memorized each line. Greek is his genre. IT’S HIS LIFE!

Amanda’s lame rendition of Demetri(os)’ wild side, with a mixture of true elements:

Being extremely Greek, Demetri(os) went around on an extended B and E adventure in Romeo. He stole Greek themed objects for his love, aptly named Juliet. He built her an Acropolis out of Legos, gave her Greek yogurt, and even went out of his way to immortalize her beauty in a statue made of starburst. Other shenanigans.

Truthfully said, he is undecided about his major. He has thought about architecture, hence the Lego quip. Demetri chose Oakland as it was close but not too far away.  If he hadn’t, how would he be able to read a ramshackle interview conducted by a sick person? After all, his SpongeBob collection at home is only thirty minutes away.

I asked him, “What is one adjective that would describe you?”

He gave me, “Extraordinary!”

What I got from it was GREEK! So with the super fun times that MS Paint can create, I present to you a combination of the two.

Extraordinarily Greek

Author’s Note: I’m not being mean, he gave me permission to edit these pictures. Also, that cape was such a pain to draw using a mouse. I made sure to get the number of stripes right. I also dub him Captian Greek from now on. Please get this as a cape and wear it to class!

    As usual, I love your voice; the humor is very appropriate!

    I liked that the biography was humorous because I also like to see the humor in everyday life. She included many key points but much of the information was overly dramatized. She liked to focus on the fact that I am greek over many over points.
