Book Snippets {1}


Snippets from one of my older "idea books" ... I'm starting to piece together.

    In high school I loved a boy named Rick. I loved talking to him. He'd give me funny nicknames. I always loved telling him he was crazy because he'd come back with, "Crazy about you." I'm sure he used that line on all his girlfriends but at the time it made me feel special. I had best friends who happened to be boys and I thought they were incredibly adorable. I had plenty of awkward moments. And plenty of bad boys who liked to show up at my house unannounced.

    After that day it was always a little awkward between the two of us. I’d always catch him staring at me in History or he’d catch me. We never really talked about liking each other. It was just a sort of understood. My problem was I had two guys on my mind and didn’t know which one was in the lead.

    Driving on the interstate sucks when you have a small car. I get so nervous. Semi-trucks always think they can get away with anything on the road, especially if they’re driving next to a VW Beetle. Don’t you hate it? I wish I lived in Europe for the simple fact that all large trucks have to stay in the right lanes. Not here. They mostly just ride your ass until they force you to move over, because for some reason they believe they live above the law and can go thirty miles over the speed limit. I say semis are good for three things: kicking up rainwater, causing accidents, and pissing me off.
