OppositesWe were like oil and water
Never to fully mixed, but coexisted well.She was the oil, always afloat in whatever she did, while I was the water, insignificant and plain.She was slippery and sly in argument, bold when she spoke, and compassionate to who she spoke to. I was the opposite with my furthest wish being to become invisible to any teacher seeking the answer to a question.She belonged in the Olympics and Harvard at the same time, while I was content to attend a two year college.She was the complex mixture of a brownie while I was just the sprinkles you put on top.Together we were whole
We complimented the best things about the other person.And most of all
We were likeoil and water.
ArgumentI told you this wasnt the right way! She scolded, pointing angrily to a spot on the map laid out in front of her.You didnt say anything of the sort, he responded coolly. Besides, its impossible to know which way were going with this rain. As he spoke the rain pounded on the car roof as if to demonstrate this further.We should have stopped for directions, She shot back stiffly, forcing the map back into a semi-folded condition. For all we know we could be headed straight for the lake!For gods sake, if we were headed for the lake Id know it. He answered angrily. Really, you havent got any faith in my driving at all, do you?None at all, She agreed. Do you suppose well be late to the wedding? She added, not missing a beat. They were both dressed in formals, the woman occasionally checking her makeup to be sure it was still done nicely.
My Dog Ate My HomeworkShe asked, and I answered. It was that simple. *pause* Alright, maybe not THAT simple, but it was close. See, when I got to school I had the worst excuse in the world for where my homework was. The only problem was that it wasnt an excuse! Did my teacher believe that? Of course not.So I went to class and told her quite plainly, My dog ate my homework,. Ignoring the fit of giggles that erupted from my class, I waited for my teachers comment. She told me just as plainly that mine was the worst excuse shed ever heard. Of course I had to tell the story though
I couldnt have her thinking I was some irresponsible kid who didnt do their homework!So I was at home with my dog Fluffy. Yes, my dogs name is fluffy. Is there a problem with that? Anyway, Fluffy has a thing about eating whatever is in my left hand. She could care less whats in my right hand, but if its in my left Id better watch out. Why did I hold my homework in my left h
A 'Fountain' of JoyIt had been exactly two years since Lucy Robinson and Matt Lewis began dating, and that night they were celebrating an especially exciting anniversary. Through the two years they had carried on a solid relationship, had worked through all of their problems, and had loved each other no less with every passing day. It was only natural that Lucy Robinson was hoping for something a bit more permanent than a dozen roses on this anniversary, and was acting accordingly.They were seated across from one another at Commensale Romantico, an Italian diner known for its romantic atmosphere. It was Lucys first time at such a fancy restaurant, though she had heard many stories of proposals and happy endings taking place in the very spot.Matt shifted uncomfortably in his seat, unable to miss the tense atmosphere.You look lovely Lucy, He complimented at last, his voice uncertain. It broke at the worst times, leaving him even more flustered than when he
OHF Chapter 4I can feel your anticipation as you read through my observations, waiting to see what my opinions on the common cliques are. After all, I mentioned them ever so briefly in the first of my remarks saying they would define whether you sink or float in high school. In all seriousness, this is truer than most care to realize. Because of that, I think it best to begin with the clique that is most likely to succeed in the real world, and most often teased during their teenage years. We are going to focus now on the geeks of a common high school.Have you ever read a book titled something along the lines of You know youre a __ when
replacing the blank with things like redneck or dog lover? Well, in my experience as a freshman I silently filled in that blank with the word geek while sitting in class one day. Not talking about myself of course, as I fit into a much different group, but rather talking about a boy in my class.It was a habit of mine to spend th
