Like the Prius?

Another throwback story.

When I was a freshman, I was on my University’s club frisbee team.

I was still getting to know the rest of the players in the first few weeks. I greeted one of them, and said, “Hi I’m Jordan, what’s your name?”

He responded: “Nice to meet you, my name’s Prius.”

I like to make sure I get people’s name right, so I either repeat it back or relate it to a famous person’s name.

So I said, “Oh Prius, like the car?”

His reaction.


He then said under his breath, “…. yeah.”

I didn’t know what to say after that, so I just awkwardly stayed quiet and went on with the frisbee practice.

My Life is Deaf.
