I still love Real Genius and like working quotes from it into conversation, but when I was in high school it turned out to be a really good way of sticking my foot in my mouth when I quoted it.
I transfered between high schools when Iw as a sohphomore, so I'm standing around at orientation feeling rather conspicuous since I didn't know anyone and was already 5'8" tall. Some guy I don't know walkes up and is like "Hey do you run?" in this drill sargenty tone. At this moment my nerves and my 14 year old ego swirl into the decision to be a smart ass back so I say "Only when chased." (which is true, but nonethless) it turns out this was both the track coach and my biology teacher who took an immediate dislike to my punk smartass self and made my life a living hell for the next year.
So, be careful out there, myself I've since learned that there are a lot of decaffinated brands out there that are just as tasty as the real thing, so I'm doing much better. :)
