Kevin Maggliardi and his best friend, Jing Hao, were moving into their Cambridge, MA apartment with a couple other good friends, David Vittorio and John Harold. After seven hours of intense moving of furniture and other things, Kevin wanted some time to himself in his room. His bed was assembled, so he lay on his bed after breaking a sweat with moving. His room was dead silent, but he didn’t care. He closed his eyes and relaxed for a bit. After a few seconds, he paid so much attention to the dead silence, that he listened to his blood flowing.
Levi Cranston and Kevin Maggliardi had just finished a run along the Charles River in Boston. They sat along the river to catch their breath and regain their composures.
“Did I tell you the story about when my friends and I did the energy drink challenge?” Kevin asked his friend.
“Yeah, I think so. Don’t remember offhand,” Levi replied.
“It was literally the stupidest thing we could’ve done.”
“Remind me what happened?”
“It was really more of a science project,” Kevin said. “We wanted to see the difference in our heart rate before and after we had energy drinks.”
“Yeah, that sounds like something my friends would have done as well,” Levi remarked.
“Can’t speak for Jing, Wong, or David, but after I drank a can and a half of the stuff, my heart was pounding, and it took me a while to fall asleep.”
“When Jack, David, Asad, and I were in high school, we ran down the alleys in downtown Valpo. I didn’t tell my mom what she did. When she found out from another parent, she was super pissed.”
“I did some crazy stuff with a few friends in high school as well, but nothing like that.”
