BOATS – Part 4

BOATS - True Story 02I felt really weird knowing I was going to be with Lisa’s boy friend, I told her.

“It’s no biggie,” she said. “You know I wanted to see what Ron’s like anyway.”

“I know. But it would be different if you didn’t know about it. Like, if we were doing it behind your back, but you’re gonna be sitting in the next room.” Continue reading

Diary – December 29, 1978

TE_Mortifying Diary pic 01I don’t know what the heck I’m supposed to write in a diary. I just say what I did all day in my other ones. I want to write more how I feel though. If I wrote what I did, you know what I’d write today? “I raked up leaves and let the kids play in them. Me, K and S went in my backyard and did nothing. I went to JK’s.” Continue reading

BOATS – Part 2

BOATS - True Story 07And so it went. I began spending more and more time with Paula and her friends. If Steve had an abundance of coke, we got it free. If he was running low, we paid. And all throughout we drank. Continue reading

BOATS – Part 1

BOATS - True Story 11I find this next story interesting for a few reasons. At 160 pages it’s probably the longest single story I ever churned out; it seems I wrote it when I was in high school which will either make it less cringeworthy than The Islanders because I was becoming a better writer, or it will be infinitely more cringetastic because I should have been a better writer by the time I hit high school; it seems to be somewhat autobiographical; and finally, what I find most intriguing, is that I have absolutely no memory of writing this story. So aside from the first handful of pages that I flipped through trying to trigger a recollection, we’ll essentially be reading it for the first time, together. And hopefully, by the time we’ve finished, I’ll still be thinking this was a good idea. Continue reading

Diary – February 18, 1980

TE_Mortifying Diary pic 01Last night I went on my first real date! Me & JK went with VR and LM. We drove to Lakewood and saw Chapter II. It was neat. I kissed him 3 times. 2Wice in the car and once on my porch. He told me that he likes me, but I only wanna be friends really. I don’t know if I’m gonna ask him to the Sadie’s yet. He’s a senior and all and he’s so nice! But I’m not into getting into any relationship or anything.
