An exboyfriend, some fake boobs and a stalker

There was something about Jason* that caught my eye the moment I saw him. I was working as the receptionist at the Jeep dealership, and he was a Jeep owner. And when Jason’s ice-blue eyes looked into mine and he told me he was bartending at a restaurant in Fort Mill and that I should come…

Life is a gift. Use it or lose it …

So, I’m a little late on the the whole “look back/look ahead” post that comes at the end of the year, but I was too busy celebrating the holidays to take the time to sit down and think about it! So, better late than never, right? Last year I wrote about some thoughts on 2008,…

Busted for tapping on a boy’s window

A memory It is 1993, the day before Christmas Eve, and I have told my parents I’m staying at Carmen’s house. She’s told her parents she’s staying at my house. A risky move, but one that has worked a few times. We are out playing all night long, driving around, hanging out with people at…

A 20-year-old confession

A memory I am 6 years old and in first grade. Jason is my boyfriend. I’m not sure how this happened, but it had something to do with my sticker book and two pigs kissing and I showed it to him and he liked it. Later I decide I don’t want to have a boyfriend…
