Grant was never popular during his high school years. So he should have been extremely suspicious near the end of his senior year when he was invited to a party by one of the beautiful people. But he was too excited to turn down the invitation. It all seemed innocent enough. Becky had approached him … Continue reading Popular

Operation

Justin arrived late to the party. He usually arrived late to things. He did it on purpose. He was hoping for a spot in the yearbook as the senior who was most likely to show up late to graduation. He could have gone for friendliest or class clown, but those awards seemed too obvious. He … Continue reading Operation

Question of the Week #279

If someone threw a party for you and invited everyone who ever mattered to you, who would you be most excited about seeing? Most anxious about? Why? Anyone else hear the Golden Girls theme song when you read this question? It can't just be me... I can think of a lot of people I'd be … Continue reading Question of the Week #279

Mistletoe

Eddie stood, leaning against the door frame. He stared into his friend’s living room, scanning the faces of people that he hardly knew. He was uncomfortable, as he usually was at social gatherings. He had been debating all day whether or not he should even follow through with his plan to celebrate the New Year … Continue reading Mistletoe

So It Turns Out I Did Have a Surprise Birthday Party…

It was just planned for a week after my birthday. Let's call this post a retraction of sorts. Remember how, a month prior to my birthday, I said that I wasn't having a party? I was certain that nothing would be happening on my behalf because none of my closest friends live nearby and my family, … Continue reading So It Turns Out I Did Have a Surprise Birthday Party…

Question of the Week #194

Would you generally rather be overdressed or underdressed at a party? I'm not typically one who likes to get dressed up. I had enough of that during my years as a bank teller. So I guess I'd rather be underdressed. Although, I suppose if I show up in jeans and a t-shirt to a party … Continue reading Question of the Week #194

That Time I Got Tricked Into Watching Peppa Pig

I recently took a trip down to Raleigh for a friend's daughter's high school graduation. It's funny... A few months ago, I remember talking with coworkers about how I don't understand why people voluntarily go to graduation ceremonies. There's nothing entertaining about them. At best, you get a couple of speakers and someone who has … Continue reading That Time I Got Tricked Into Watching Peppa Pig
