Prolly - original fic
“So have you thought anymore about life after high school?” I asked.

“I’m prolly gonna go work for my dad in the shop,” he said.

“Prolly?”

“Yeah, prolly. I don’t know yet.”

“Oh! Probably.”

“Yeah, that’s what I said. Something wrong with your hearing?” he shot me a look of half-irritation, half-concern.

“No. Hearing’s good.”

“I s’pose I could apply for college.”

“That’s an option. There are some nice community colleges in the area.”

“Nah. If I’m gonna go to college, it’s State for me. Those guys know how to party. Think I could get in?”

“Prolly. I mean, probably.”
