Transcript of Against the odds

U2: Against the odds
L4: Conversation


What do you see in this picture?
Ahmed:
Fahd? Fahd?
Ahmed:
I’m going to school here.
Fahd:
I can’t get over this. What are the chances? I hope we’ll see each other around campus. Though,
I don’t know if we’ll run into each other that often. I’ll be spending most of my time on the north
campus. That’s where most of my classes will be.
Ahmed:
Ahmed! Abdullah’s brother. From Jeddah. From back home.
Fahd:
I knew you looked familiar, but I couldn’t place your face.
What are you doing here?
Fahd:
No way! That’s incredible. Abdullah never mentioned that
you were going to college in Beirut.
Ahmed:
I didn’t know either until a couple of months ago. I applied,
but I was put on the waiting list. It was looking iffy there for a while, but I got a break in July.
A space opened up. I was so happy that I was on cloud nine for weeks.
Ahmed:
Why? What are you studying?
Fahd:
Pre-law.
Ahmed:
No way! I’m studying pre-law, too!
Fahd:
OK. Now you’re freaking me out.
Ahmed:
This is amazing. What dorm are you in? Wait. Don’t tell me. I bet you’re in Fares Hall.
Fahd:
No. Habib Hall.
Ahmed:
Whew. I’m almost glad. I don’t think I could have handled another coincidence.
