Overheard in the student lounge:
"My friend just got engaged, but she's freaking out. Her fiancee is in the military, so if a war starts his contract might be extended. And if that happens he'll want to get married right away so she'll be entitled to the benefits. So, you know, she's going crazy, because if she has to get married in, like, six months, she won't have time to plan it. She may have to settle for, like, a small ceremony with a party at some restaurant."
