Don’t tell me I’m the only one who’s noticed. Dormrats!
If you change the sheets on your bed this semester (see that funny look on your roommate’s face when it comes in? They’re begging now, but they’ll get violent later…) so maybe I should say, “when.”
WHEN you change the sheets on your bed this semester, check the top and bottom of the mattress for tags. If you find your tag, and it hasn’t rotted away with that missing pillowcase, read it. It’ll say “Texas Correctional Industries” and on one side, it’ll even have a stamp, “Sam Houston State University.”
If this article should cause you to kill someone, say…in administration, and you’re in jail with nothing to do, then try this.
If you change the sheets on your bed, check the top and bottom of the mattress for tags. If you still have a tag, read it. I would almost lay money on what you’d find there; a familiar little star and state logo, with a stamp on one side, reminding you that you’re in Goree or Ellis or wherever.
Does the “box springs” under the mattress still sag if you’re over 98 pounds? Does the entire structure still creak when you roll over in the middle of the night? Are the walls still a mind-numbing white wash and everyone refuses to clean the toilet? Just lay back (creeEEEAAAaaak… *poing*) and imagine you have class in the morning, and just remember how grateful we all are that your sudden fit of violence earned the DORMS REAL MATTRESSES.
