When I was in high school, we had a foreign exchange student from Germany come to live with us. He was my brother's age, who's two years older than me, and the two of them used to persecute me. Michael, the exchange student, nicknamed me "Orange Elephant" because I tried to dye my hair blonde and it wound up orange. Really really orange. I left it that color too. It's just hair!
I was also a foreign exchange student in Germany and during the couple of days I actually went to school, I ran into Michael. Small world. He's now a doctor. Didn't see that one coming!
