Sitting on my bed and all that goes through my mind is I have a million things to do and only half the time
Aerosmith starts singing Ragdoll from my bright pink cell phone speakers. I grab it from my windo sill beside my bed and look at the collar ID. It's my best friend. I slide it open.
"Hey can we hang out tonight?"
I consider all of the facts laying out on the table in front of me; it is a sunday night at nine thirty and I have school in the morning, not to mention all the homework I have yet to even start. "Alright. You at Mallissa's?"
"K, I'll be over in a jiffy!"
I hang up and slide the phone in my back pocket as I stand up and grab my purse from the floor. I do a mentle check, making sure I have everyghing and then as I exit my bedroom I notice my keys on my dresser beside the door. Can't forget these.
I grab them and jog to the living room to let my dad know where I am going.
I have driven to Mallissa's a million times before and practically know the route by heart...almost bettere than to my own house. I get there in record time and call to see where she is.
"I'm at the boat!"
"Look at the house."
"OK. I'm looking."
"K. Do you see the flagpole?"
"Ummm...Oh yeah I see it!"
"K...Walk directly towards it."
"Do you see the dock?"
"Yeah...Oh I see the boat..."
I hang up the phone quickly and walk down the dock towards her. Of course she has to take forever to get ready to leave...so I wait. I am a talkative person and cannot sit long in silence.
"So...you livin' in a boat?"
"Well are'nt you just a genius? Have you not yet noticed this giant thing floating in the water? Yeah it kinda looks a bit like a boat don't it? Well I believe it is...so yes I am living in a boat, Krissy, that I am!"
"Oh...wait...there's a boat in the water?...Where?"
The corners of my lips curl up into a vicious grin, at the retaliation I made at here attempt at sarcasm. Of course It doen't take me long to start another conversation. In case you haven't noticed I am blond and have the attention span of a golden retriever, as all my friends put it.
"So...you ready to go yet?"
"Almost...I just need to grab some female items from the house and then we can go."
"I have some tampons. I just got over my period so I have some left over that you can have."
She gives me this look that reminds me of a werewolf about to stalk it's prey. After about a minute of this she finally starts to walk towards me and of course I just wait for her to come closer and then we walk off the pier side by side. We walk to my car and I press the button on my beeper to unlock the doors and we climb in. I wait for her to buckle her seatbelt before I turn the keys to start the engine and then place it in reverse and we are slowely backing out of the driveway. I start to turn onto the road when I...
