Bob: "Sure thing."

A drama kid is someone who spends the majority of their time on the stage/drama room.
You never see what goes on when they are in there. Except in rare occasions when the stage curtains/wall is open and people in the Caf see whats going on.
Drama kids hang out with other drama kids and are generally very flirtatious.
They are some of the coolest kids you will ever know, no matter how nerdy they seem. Many spend their free time gaming, playing Dungeons and Dragons and other drama related things.
Generally drama kids have chosen to spend their high school years on the stage and with that chose become social outcasts. However, the drama kid does not care.
There are two types of drama kids:
The, "OMG, I don't care what you think, so I'll do it anyway." Drama kid, Type A.
and the "Oh, well I'll just be quiet in front of people." Drama kid, Type B
Type A drama kid is the same on stage/ in the drama room, as they are anywhere else, the do not tone down their wildness for your benefit.
Type B Drama kid is someone who acts completely different in front of Drama kids, but shys away in front of others.
Drama kids can be indentified by their, original choices in clothing, and general awsomeness.
Someone who likes drama. They will often appear in (or try out for) every single school play that there is. And can often be seen spending endless hours in or around the drama and chorus rooms of the average high school. Some drama kids are also very involved with chorus. They love to perform and they love the arts. They are also known to take a lot of art or language classes. A small portion of drama kids may also take band.
If there is a starbuck's in the area, they can often be found there after school, on weekends, after a performance, or just about any random time of day(because true drama kids need no reason to go to starbucks). Other hangouts for drama kids are the mall, a bookstore, taco bell, chick-fil-a, and school. Particularly when they are working on a production, drama kids practically live at school. Whether its staying late because of a rehersal or working on a set piece, or just talking with other drama kids, they're there(at school-usually by the drama and/or chorus rooms). Drama kids are also known to get all of their friends and/or family into drama and the arts.
If you go to the school play(or get dragged there by someone against your will), they are usually the main characters. If you repeatedly go to stuff that's sponsered by the drama department or a drama class, they're always there or involved in some way.
"There go all those drama kids again, at starbucks."
