Phenylketonurics

You're ascending the Southern hill to campus, when you hear a "hey" from behind. This presents a dilemma for a number of reasons. The dilemma being turn or not. As i see it, there's a one in three chance that the hey was directed at you. The other two options being directed at another person or into a phone. So given then odds, it requires serious contemplation before the turn. Likely, it was not your hey to accept, and by turning you are made the fool. But if the 33.3% betrays you and it's Becky from the second grade who wishes to hug and chat and buy you lunch, you're not turning is ice cold and she'll cry herself to sleep tonight.

*If the speaker from behind is dressed in a Little Ceaser's Uniform, holding a cardboard pepperoni pizza guitar and standing on the street, his "Hot and Ready Five Dollar Pizza!" is most definitely for you to hear even if you're in the middle of an intense cardiovascular exercise and in no way able to carry a pizza 12 blocks home.
