S: September?! Ai mi, it cannot be true! [He spies the newspaper, drops his hat and flowers, and dives for it.] September 9 th ! How can it be? I have missed her! [He falls to the ground dramatically and lays weeping with his arm over his face.] J: [To himself] This man is clearly insane. [Sound of high heels from off stage left. B enters wearing a yellow trench coat. She spies S and gasps.] B: My love! [S picks up his head, sees B and bounds to his feet. He snatches up his hat and flowers, rushes over to B and falls to his knees in front of her.] S: Mi amor! You are here! B: I have come here every day to this bus stop for a month hoping you would come. Every day I left disappointed but still hopeful that you would come the next day. And here you are! S: You can never know the depths of my regret. Here I was a month behind the whole time! Woe is me, I thought last month was the one before and this month was the last! B: Then I am so wondrously happy that I continued to return! S: As am I! [They embrace. Sound of bus screeching off stage right. S runs to the edge of the stage.] My good sir! Where is this bus headed?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
