Seniors Mackenzie Kelly and Jeremy Paul:

KN: When did you first start dating?

MK: That’s kind of tricky. We were together in April but we didn’t make it official until July.

JP: Why was that?

MK: Because I went away for seven weeks and I didn’t want to have a relationship while I was in Europe.

JP: What was the other minor reason? Do you not remember it?

MK: Oh, yeah. He wanted to start a relationship on an odd day and I hate odd numbers. So I had to wait until we came back on an even day.

KN: Well, Jeremy, is there an exact date for all of this?

JP: April 21 unofficially, July 18 officially.

KN: How did Jeremy ask?

MK: Actually, he didn’t. I made a bet with him that he couldn’t remember my number, but I didn’t yet know he was a math genius and he remembered it and he sent me a text saying, “I win.” After that we made a “bubble bet.” So, if I blew the bigger bubble he had to kiss me. I won and he had to kiss me and that was at my house the first time we really hung out.

JP: It was rigged.

KN: What’s Jeremy’s ideal date?

MK: Probably sitting there watching or playing video games and quoting movies.

JP: What? Whoa, it has nothing to do with video games. The quoting movies, sure.

KN: What about Mackenzie’s ideal date?

JP: The light show at the Botanical Gardens.

MK: He already took me on it, the Botanical Gardens.

KN: What’s Jeremy’s favorite movie?

MK: I’m gonna use what he just wrote a college essay about: “Zombieland.”

JP: Not really anything specific.

KN: What’s Mackenzie’s favorite movie?

JP: “The Breakfast Club.”

MK: Hands down, “The Breakfast Club.”

KN: What’s Jeremy’s current favorite TV show?

MK: Well, he watched “Teen Wolf” last night so I’m going with that.

JP: “Psych.”

KN: What’s Mackenzie’s favorite TV show?

JP: What’s it called… I can’t remember what it’s called. Some red wedding thing. I just can’t think of the name. Some dungeons and dragons thing.

MK: Jeremy, it’s called “Game of Thrones,” not “Dungeons and Dragons.”

KN: What’s Jeremy’s favorite food?

MK: Big Al’s chocolate cake.

JP: Bacon cheeseburger.

KN: What about Mackenzie’s?

JP: This chicken breast stuffed with cheese. I forgot the name of the cheese. Some, like, herb and stuffed cheese thing.

KN: What’s Jeremy’s favorite color?

MK: Blue.

JP: Blue.

KN: What’s Mackenzie’s favorite color?

MK: Blue.

JP: Blue.

KN: What does Jeremy like to do in his free time?
